What is Failure Mode and Effects Analysis?
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) techniques have
been around for over 40 years. In recent years, use of FMEAs
has gained popularity as a quality improvement tool. This
interest is in large part due to the automotive industry and
specifically its IAFT 16949 supplier requirements. Other
major industries, including aerospace, medical products and
electronics are also using FMEA techniques as part of their
improvement and risk assessment strategies. Unlike many
quality improvement tools, FMEAs do not require complicated
statistics. FMEA studies can yield significant savings for a
company as well as reduce the potential liability of a
process or product that does not perform as promised.
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis Online Training
Failure Mode and Effectives Analysis (FMEA) training provides step-by-step instructions on
how to conduct a Process-FMEAs (PFMEA). Learners completing this training will be able to
effectively participate on an PFMEA team and make immediate
contributions to quality and productivity improvement
efforts. For how to do FMEAs in a non-manufacturing
environment, see FMEAs for the Services.
This Training Enables Learners To...
- Explain the purpose of conducting an FMEA.
- Explain the methodology of the FMEA process.
- Assemble an FMEA team.
- Define the scope of a PFMEA.
- Work though each step of conducting a PFMEA.
- Use the FMEA Analysis Worksheet to document the results of the study.
- Customize the Severity, Occurrence and Detection Ranking Scales.
- Use the results of a PFMEA to trigger continuous improvement.
