12/15/2017 - PFMEA Workshop with Pete Teti


Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (PFMEA) is a tool used to identify high risk areas within a given process and the controls required to mitigate those risks.  Pete Teti, Product & Process Validation Fellow for Pratt & Whitney, helped develop a method to properly evaluate the quality of  PFMEAs conducted.  He will lead this workshop covering what it takes to assure the PFMEAs conducted in one’s facility are most effective.  He will go over the red flags to look out for that may indicate improvement opportunities as well as how to evaluate the key PFMEA documents such as the Process Flow Diagram, PFMEA and Process Control Plan.  This workshop will include several interactive exercises to best bring forth the learning.
