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
