Failure Modes And Effects Analysis (Fmea)

Category: Failure Modes And Effects Analysis (Fmea)

Course Description

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a tool that can identify product and process failures before they occur, identify appropriate risk mitigation measures to prevent or otherwise control the failure, and improve product and process design.

All product and process failures (and the actions required to control these failures) are predictable and preventable. However, organizations frequently experience predictable and preventable failures with costly consequences. These failures can lead to product recalls, death or injury, poor quality, and unanticipated cost.

The aerospace and defence industries have used FMEA for decades. FMEA has made significant inroads into automotive, biomedical device, and many other industries. Your organization can benefit greatly from this analysis tool.

This course utilizes real-life case studies to help you apply this toolkit effectively to your job. The Manufacturing Training Failure Modes and Effects Analysis program is an intense 16-hour course that will teach your staff how to prepare FMEAs for your products and processes.

Course Methodology

This is a hands-on course on using MS Excel as a BI tool. Groups and individuals will be required to complete exercises, case studies, and projects on a daily basis

Program Objectives

  • Learn the Concepts, purpose & benefits of FMEA
  • Learn how to implement FMEA
  • Examine how to use Severity, Occurrence and Detection Scales
  • Learn how to Prioritize RPNs
  • Lear how to apply FMEA to Participant Projects
  • Learn how to Discern Recommended Corrective Actions and Risk Mitigation


This program uses a number of interactive techniques, taking into account individual’s experience, group discussions, video analytics, analysis by the participants, simulation exercises and case studies

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, project engineers, design engineers, procurement specialists, manufacturing managers, production managers and supervisors.
