Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
Prevention is always better than cure! Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) was originally developed in the 1960's in the aerospace industry as a systematic method of identifying and investigating potential design or process weaknesses.
This training course is delivered in-house and covers the following areas:
- Introduction - Purpose, Background & Benefits
- Steps in Design FMEA
- Project Planning
- Design Intent, Failure Modes, Effects on Customer
- Cause of Failure
- Calculation of Risk Priority Number (RPN)
- Design Verification
- Overview of Process FMEA
- Implementing FMEA
- Where to apply
- Common Mistakes
Who should attend?
- Those involved in the design or specification of products, processes or services
- Those involved in business improvement or process improvement management
- Managers wishing to understand the benefits of FMEA before company implementation
- Team members involved in a support role
Get to grips with Failure Mode and Effects Analysis
What will I learn?
- Understand the purpose and benefits of FMEA
- How to implement FMEA
How will I benefit?
- FMEA is now widely used to evaluate and manage risk in both product and process design
- Through the recognition and evaluation of potential areas of failure, an organization can identify preventative actions and therefore minimise the risk of system failure
- This course can only be delivered as in-company training
