The 10-Step Method for Corrective Action
Previously titled Identifying the Correct Casting Defect
Participants will be introduced to a basic overview of a casting defect analysis procedure. Course topics will include an introduction to the 10-step method for casting defect identification, how to compose a problem statement, a discussion on the importance of recording process parameters, an introduction to navigating the “International Atlas of Casting Defects”, a path to identifying the correct defect and its root cause for corrective action. Learning a systematic procedure for root cause identification supports the business goal of designing, producing, and selling quality castings in a timely manner and in a safe environment at a profit. For in-depth casting defect identification, consider enrolling in Casting Defect Analysis.
Class participants will learn to:
- List the steps used in casting defect analysis.
- State the benefits of using a consistent approach.
- Identify a good problem statement.
- Collect process data using the process sheet.
- State the importance of evaluating data.
- Use the international atlas of casting defects classification system.
