Then find your goals...

STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 999 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of Process Design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Dfmea improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:

  1. What are the current costs of the Dfmea process?

  2. How frequently do you verify your Dfmea strategy?

  3. Has an output goal been set?

  4. How will costs be allocated?

  5. Who is responsible for Dfmea?

  6. How do you engage the workforce, in addition to satisfying them?

  7. What projects are going on in the organization today, and what resources are those projects using from the resource pools?

  8. What other jobs or tasks affect the performance of the steps in the Dfmea process?

  9. Whom among your colleagues do you trust, and for what?

  10. Would you develop a Dfmea Communication Strategy?

Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Dfmea book in PDF containing 994 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

Your Dfmea self-assessment dashboard which gives you your dynamically prioritized projects-ready tool and shows your organization exactly what to do next:

  • The Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard; with the Dfmea Self-Assessment and Scorecard you will develop a clear picture of which Dfmea areas need attention, which requirements you should focus on and who will be responsible for them:

    • Shows your organization instant insight in areas for improvement: Auto generates reports, radar chart for maturity assessment, insights per process and participant and bespoke, ready to use, RACI Matrix
    • Gives you a professional Dashboard to guide and perform a thorough Dfmea Self-Assessment

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Dfmea projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Dfmea and put Process Design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Dfmea investments work better.

This Dfmea All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
