Course Overview

This course enables the participants to acquire knowledge and skills in design and implementation of 8D approach, a systematic problem-solving process in the context of high volume manufacturing. 8D includes detailed root cause analysis, containment, corrective and preventive actions. As an integral part of 8D, FMEA is commonly used to uncover problems and the effects of failures. Its application in high volume manufacturing will be discussed in detail.


After the course, the participants will be able to adopt 8D and FMEA to resolve manufacturing issues in a systematic manner.

Application/Entry Requirement

Participants must have working experiences in high volume manufacturing in electronics sector and have exposure to quality management and problem-solving in high volume manufacturing.

Who Should Attend
