Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a structured way to identify and address potential problems, or failures and their resulting effects on the system or process before an adverse event occurs.

FMEA is especially prominent in the manufacturing industry where as the complexity of a product increases, so does the probability of error as work transitions downstream from design to manufacturing to product and/or service.

FMEA is a proactive qualitative and systematic risk analysis that identifies and ranks all potential problems (failure mode) and their repercussions (effects analysis) to ensure a reliable and repeatable product and process.

Analysts believe the benefits of FMEA are substantial, and include:

  • Improved product and process reliability, quality, and safety
  • Identify and eliminate or reduce potential product and process failures
  • Document and organize shared knowledge for current and future use
  • Reduce costs and problems later in the product lifecycle
  • Better customer satisfaction

Want to learn more? Tonex offers FMEA Training, a 2-day course that covers the procedures, tools and methods on how to identify potential modes of failure prior to the launch of  a new product/system or modifying an existing one. Attendees learn how to choose tools and manage projects and teams to effectively carry out FMEA processes.

FMEA training will also teach attendees how to reduce organization’s risk of costly mistakes and how to identify potential modes of failure before launching a new product or modifying an existing one.
