Course Description

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) are methodologies designed to identify potential failure modes for a product or process, to assess the risk associated with those failure modes, to rank the issues in terms of importance and to identify and carry out corrective actions to address the most serious concerns.

Although the purpose, terminology and other details can vary according to type (e.g. Process FMEA - PFMEA, Design FMEA - DFMEA, System FMEA, Product FMEA, FMECA, etc.), the basic methodology is similar for all.

This course presents instruction on the execution of Process FMEA analysis techniques and requirements.

Who should attend?

This course is designed to be of interest to:

Those involved in the design or specification of processes or services

Managers wishing to understand the benefits of PFMEA before company implementation

Team members involved in a support role

Benefits to Your Business

PFMEA 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.
