Risk Mitigation - Determine Risk and Monitor for Non-Conformance

Risk Mitigation Through Design and Inspection

Determine Risk of Failure

Model-Based Definition and the Digital Twin provide early indicators of risk. By analyzing the design with simulation tools like 3DCS Variation Analyst, you can determine the level of risk in your design and understand the possibility of non-conformance should you go to production. 

Optimize Designs to Reduce Risk

By using iterative design processes through simulation, you can reduce your risk of failure. Honing in on key critical features during this process allows engineers to create solutions to reduce the chance of failure and non-conformance while also reducing manufacturing costs in non-critical areas. 

Use Inspection to Control Risk

Not all risk can be mitigated through design. Some risk is inherent to the design of the product and worst-case scenarios. However, designing out these risks, or even lowering them to the smallest chance possible, is often monetarily impossible. To compensate, determine the key critical characteristics of your product and focus inspection on those areas, making your team aware of any issues as soon as they begin and keeping faulty products out of the hands of your customers.
