Imagine that errors don’t occur, so you don’t have to spend time, resources, and ultimately money on getting the error corrected again. The DFMEA analysis tool can be successful – here you gain control over your product.

DFMEA – Gain control of your product

DFMEA stands for Design Failure Mode Effect Analysis and is an analytical tool for proactive risk management where you and your company are given the opportunity to discover the flaws and correct them already in the Design process.

Experts estimate Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ) – that is, how much it costs to make mistakes – to be five to 30 percent of gross revenue for most companies.

As an example of how much you lose out on mistakes, imagine a company that translates for 100 million kroner on the week and has a COPQ of 20 percent. This means that out of a five-day working week, a whole day will go on producing products that cannot be used for anything!

Fortunately, DFMEA is a unique tool for quality assurance of your products. You get control of your products from the start of the production process.

DFMEA is for all companies that work with design. There are several different types of Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) – e.g. Process FMEA (PFMEA). However, in the LSV Group we work primarily with DFMEA-Design Failure Mode Effect Analysis.

So say goodbye to mistakes and not least the fire-fighting culture in your organization – the fires are getting harder conditions in your business with DFMEA.

DFMEA – Trajectory at LSV Group

We are always open to the customer’s needs, but have developed some training models that would like to ensure that your company is thoroughly dressed in relation to the DMFEA.

Course 1: Three weeks of DFMEA Basic Course

With our basic course, participants should go from teaching with an understanding of the DFMEA tool, how to use it, why it is important to use it – and last but not least, the students would like to leave the process with a change in the mindset. In the figure, you’ll see how the LSV group’s three-week baseline looks.

Days 1 and 2

Classroom training, Introduction to DFMEA and support

Day 14


Day 21

Collection and Support

Course 2: Five-day DFMEA facilitator Training

Do you want to implement a persistent DFMEA culture in your organization? Then we would recommend that your company also choose a DFMEA facilitator course like two or four weeks after the basic course. It is targeted at selected employees, who must be good ambassadors for DFMEA.

The course contains three days of teaching and two days of follow-up training 14 days after.

What you get with DFMEA-facilitator training:

  • Change Management
  • Conflict management Tools
  • You learn to quality secure the DFMEA process
  • You will learn to understand the contexts in the bottom of DFMEA
  • You learn how to train and facilitate DFMEA in your organization
    You become a resource that can challenge the designers on the quality

There is always a requirement for design

In a product, there are always a number of requirements for each part element. We are based on requirements we know and map them.

See, for example, a shopping cart. For example, the customer has an expectation that the wheels on the cart slip smoothly around and that there is room for many items in the cart. Other requirements could be that there is a children’s seat in the trolley, which is comfortable to sit on.

In DFMEA, we work to identify what are the requirements for the individual parts, such as the wheels on the shopping cart, the seat, etc., but also what it is necessary for the individual parts to fit together and eventually to form a shopping cart.

In short, each sub-element is reviewed to ensure the right quality. This is done in collaboration with the employees within the company who have the technical knowledge.

In the LSV Group we offer the framework (DFMEA) and the ability to thoroughly ask the right questions to elucidate the risk elements of the design that the company may not even think about.

DFMEA is therefore the link between designers, production and other relevant stakeholders – a kind of communication tool that ensures that employees and any suppliers have a common risk picture.

So, with DFMEA, we make sure that all elements of the design are finely combed to avoid mistakes and ultimately waste the company’s money.

How we work with DFMEA

There are many steps in the work on Design Failure Mode Effect Analysis,
But roughly speaking, there are three phases in the DFMEA work – including a general overview:

Phase 1-gathering knowledge

  • Employees must understand the task and product design

Phase 2-mapping

  • The product is reviewed
  • A risk image is created
  • Elements to be pursued are selected
  • All stakeholders must agree on the risk picture
  • All products and subassemblies are reviewed for potential errors

Phase 3 Action Plan

  • What actions are needed to reduce the risk picture?
  • Ownership, deadlines and deliveries must be defined

How we work with DFMEA

At LSV Group We are not afraid to find the “sore toes” and get the facts put on the table. We have solid experience in DFMEA and have worked with products of high complexity.

Our experienced DFMEA trainers are ready to advise you.

There are many who work in different directions within DFMEA, but we have the competence to standardize the analysis tool so that everyone speaks the same language and works in the same direction.

We give a risk perspective from many angles and have the skills and competencies to bring together all main stakeholders and communicate with them so that they understand the importance of the work.

In addition, we have many years of experience with LEAN Six Sigma and are therefore trained within a business culture where data is constantly being worked on.

As a result of our LEAN Six Sigma background, we also have experience in implementing business cultures and can therefore help you and your company to be able to stand on their own feet compared to DFMEA.
