Design Verification Plan & Report (DVP&R) training course covers the theories, concepts, and methods required for DVP&R. Design verification, in general, is a crucial part of any product development. It is a key step in qualification testing, ensuring that the final product is the same as the product was supposed to design and develop. Failing to complete this step can lead to produce and manufacture a product that doesn’t meet the characteristics of the designed product or the prototype.
As you might know, many clients take the testing and design verification of products very seriously, as though in the same importance as the actual design. Even so, many contracts require design verification as a major phase, in which the clients often send their own people to witness testing and to ensure they are conducted to their satisfaction. Therefore, if you are the manager of or a member of the quality, R&D, and design team, you need to know how to conduct design verification and how to prepare the report. The TONEX Design Verification Plan and Report training course will help you gain sufficient knowledge and develop necessary skills to be able to complete DVP&R for your products.
TONEX Design Verification Plan and Report training includes many in-class activities including hands on exercises, case studies and workshops. During the DVP&R workshops, attendees can bring in their own design work and products and through our coaching, develop their own Design Verification Plan and Report (DVP&R).
While testing might seem costly at first, the price of not having it done can be way higher plus it can negatively affect the reputation of the company in the client’s view if the final product doesn’t meet the promised characteristics.
Testing should be included in the design process at many points, from the very beginning when the concept is developed to the end when the final product is produced. Although type of the tests and the methods vary from one point to another, the general guidelines are applied to all. During the DVP&R training course, we will teach you these guidelines and also teach you how to tailor them based on where, where, and the type of product for which you are conducting the tests.
Historically, DVP&R processes have been practiced by the automotive industry. However, currently such processes are being used in almost all manufacturing industries including mechanical, electrical, chemical, and even pharmaceutical and that’s because a proper Design Verification/Product Validation (DV/PV) can significantly eliminate failure modes and increase the reliability of the product. In this seminar, we will walk you through all the steps of a good, effective DV/PV that is appropriate for your industry.
The TONEX Design Verification Plan and Report (DVP&R) training is a 2-day course designed for:
- Engineers, scientists, and managers involved with manufacturing
- Production and manufacturing team
- Product design personnel
- Reliability, testing, and quality team members
- R&D personnel
- Product and process assurance people
- Assembly personnel
Upon completion of this course, attendees are able to:
- Understand and explain the importance of Design Verification Plan and Report
- Discuss the theory of Design Verification Plan and Report
- Design an appropriate DVP for the product they are testing
- Design and conduct necessary and relevant testing at various points during the design process
- Interpreted the results of the testing to find if and where the problem is and where the product deviates from standards
- Prepare the Design verification Report
- Test the prototype
- Identify the best method to conduct the verifications
- Developing measurement methods
- Determine opportunities to combine all verification activities
- Determine required equipment, software, facilities, etc. to conduct verifications
- Determine a high-level verification schedule
