Design Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (DFMEA) AIAG/VDA Issue 1 2019

Duration One Day 

Course Description

This one-day course will demonstrate what a design failure mode and effects analysis (DFMEA) is and what the many benefits of constructing one are. You will learn how to construct and analyze a design FMEA over the life of a product.
A design FMEA addresses potential failures within the design process of developing new products or processes before they occur. Conducted very early in the design process, potential design failures can be identified and reviewed against the design validation by using a design FMEA.

Design FMEAs can address product/process development timing, reduce start-up problems before they occur, and enhance product and process quality. Manage designated personnel with the skills to conduct and complete an FMEA of products or processes.

Who should attend?

This course is designed to be of interest to:

Those involved in the design or specification of products, or services

Managers wishing to understand the benefits of DFMEA before company implementation

Team members involved in a support role

Benefits to Your Business

DFMEA 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.
