Failure Modes & Effects Analysis (FMEA)
Who Should Attend?
As the Failure Modes & Effects Analysis training is focused on new implementations or change of existing designs and processes.
Team members who will be involved with these changes should be attend FMEA to insure a reduction in risk of failure.
What to Expect
This one-day course focuses on how to develop a methodology for finding and eliminating problems before they occur.
We use a team approach to finding failures in systems and evaluating their effects.
The course covers Design, Process, and System FMEA.
- Design FMEA analyzes a new process, product or service design before release and imparts an awareness of possible failures. Focus is placed on potential safety hazards, malfunctions, shortened product life or a decrease in satisfaction.
- Process FMEA is used to improve existing transactional and operational processes and to impart an awareness of how people, materials, equipment, methods and environment can trigger process glitches. Focus is placed on problems that may cause safety hazards, defects or reduced efficiency.
- System FMEA analyzes your systems and subsystems in the beginning stages of concept and design.
Overview the 12-steps of FMEA
- Step 1: Preliminary Work
- Step 2: Brainstorm Failure Modes
- Step 3: List Potential Failure Modes
- Step 4: Assign a Severity(SEV) score to each consequence
- Step 5: Identify the cause(s) of each failure mode
- Step 6: Assign Occurrence (OCC) Score
- Step 7: Identify current Controls to Detect the Failure Mode
- Step 8: Assign an Escaped Detection (DET) Score
- Step 9: Calculate the Risk Priority Number (RPN)
- Step 10: Prioritize the RPN’s
- Step 11: Determine the action to be taken
- Step 12: Recalculate Planned Risk
