Risk Management PFMEA

ISO 13485:2003 Process Tools Including Process Flow, PFMEA, Control Plans and Work Instructions

Seminar Content

This two-day hands-on seminar is intended to offer insight into, and hands-on experience with, the linkages between various aspects of the Advanced Quality Planning (AQP) process. Specifically, the development and linkage of Process Flows, PFMEAs, Control Plans and shop floor documentation are addressed. This information can be used to achieve process standardization and improvement.

This class includes breakout exercise sessions using an example of a Medical Device sub-assembly project and product launch. This running example will be used throughout the five-day Risk Management and Analysis in Medical Device Manufacturing Series.
