Rolls-Royce Inspection Planning Programme
This is part of the Rolls-Royce collaborative journey to drive out non-conformance on the journey to zero defects. Companies who should attend this course will be contacted by Rolls-Royce to request their involvement.
The course objective is to improve product verification planning, reduce inappropriate component measurement techniques, reduce the amount of MSA conducted, and minimis inspection by taking a fully risk-based approach to product verification. This course will demonstrate the potential for a reduced inspection workload and improvement in operational effectiveness.
The course will use live examples of best measurement practise. To reduce the impact on the working week, the training package uses a blend of self-study and instructor led training. The training package divided into four modules, combining a mixture of theory, worked examples and workshops.
Module 1 is self-study covering an overview of measurement. See Topics covered for details of the content of this module.Module 2 is trainer delivered and covers Inspection Planning. See Topics covered for details of the content of this module.Module 3 is trainer delivered and covers Optimisation, Reduced Inspection and Sample Inspection. See Topics covered for details of the content of this module.Module 4 is self-study and covers CMM Programming strategies and is a mixed media format. See Topics covered for details of the content of this module.
Delegates are invited to bring a real component from your current Rolls-Royce portfolio to develop in the training. You will not be compelled to share information on your part with the other supplier delegates in the course.
Module 2 and 3 may be online (Covid and geographic restrictions given) or face to face.
Feedback from previous sessions included the following. • "We have a better understanding of the requirements and opportunity to apply reduced and sample inspection to our business.” • "Mechanism to make the changes our business needs”. • “Will reduce the queue and backlog in our inspection cell”.• “Not all classroom theory, really good practical hands-on experience to make real improvement”.
The training is aimed to improve the manufacturing package, and how product verification, inspection planning, and Measurement Systems Analysis is conducted. It is also intended to be the seed for improvement through the product portfolio so people with positions of influence should be considered. Therefore, the people who would benefit are those conducting these activities, typically this may be:
• Quality Manager • Lead Programmer• Measurement Manager• Engineering Manager• Manufacturing Engineering• Inspection planning Engineer• Or other connected with Product Verification Planning and MSA
