FMECA Training | Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis Training

The FMECA Training, Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis Training course covers the theory, principals, techniques, and best practices of FMECA.

What does FMECA Training cover?

FMECA is a crucial methodology to root cause analysis and reliability assessment. The whole manufacturing process, from designing to maintenance, can benefit from this method. FMCEA is used to identify all the potential failure modes in the system, or sub-systems within the system, how severe they can be, how frequently they might happen, and what would be their impact on the system. Critically analysis adds an extra assessment to evaluate how serious these failure modes are going to be.

FMECA can be used on early stages of designing a product/process or to an existing process/product. In order for an FMECA to function effectively, it needs to be developed based on the nature of the design process itself. FMECA also requires considering operating and service issues, whereas it includes process and safety issues at the same time.

When FMECA is applied matters. Such timeline determines if a FMECA is effective or not. An effective FMECA is the one applied on early stages to prevent all kinds of failure modes.

Why FMECA Training Is Necessary?

Any industry is driven by its asset integrity. How well the assets perform against a backdrop of regulatory, safety, and cost can make a huge difference in business’s growth. It’s required to improve maintenance, while keeping the cost of it low. Therefor, learning how to develop and execute an effective FMECA is a must for those who are involved in designing, testing, producing, and maintaining a product/process.

FMECA is a technique to anticipate potential failure modes and their affect on the system. The result of such analysis is applied directly to avoid failures and to reduce the risk of failure down to a reasonable amount. Critically analysis is a significant methodology to determine which elements of equipment or systems have the greatest impact on operations. Identifying which components are the most influential helps engineers to prioritize their maintenance to-do-list in a way that is the most effective and required for the business profitability. The outcome of such procedure will result in lower cost and higher reliability. The TONEX FMECA training will help you master in all of these processes and analysis.

 FMECA Guidelines and Standards

There are different guidelines and standards regulating the requirements for the analysis relevant to each organization. However, below are the most common FMECA/FMEA guidelines/standards:

  • The U.S. Department of Defense’s MIL-STD-1629A
  • SAE International’s J1739 for automotive applications
  • SAE International’s ARP5580 documents for non-automotive applications
  • The Automotive Industry Action Group’s (AIAG) FMEA-4

FMECA Fundamental Elements:

In this FMECA training course, we will discuss and cover the basic information you would need in order to develop an effective FMECA. These elements include:

  • Item(s)
  • Function(s)
  • Failure(s)
  • Effect(s) of Failure
  • Cause(s) of Failure
  • Current Control(s)
  • Recommended Action(s)
  • Plus other relevant details

FMECA Common Analysis Methods:

During the FMECA training course, we will discuss some common failure modes and effects analysis can be used in FMECA. Such methods evaluate risk associated with the potential failure modes in the system.

  1. Risk Priority Numbers (RPN)

The RPN method is used to evaluate risks. It depends on three rates of:

  • Severity
  • Occurrence
  • Detection

RPN = Severity x Occurrence x Detection

In this FMECA seminar, we will teach you to evaluate each of the above ratings to calculate your RPN.

2. Criticality Analysis

  • The qualitative criticality analysis: to asses risk and prioritize corrective actions
  • The quantitative criticality analysis: It includes analyzing reliability/unreliability

Critically analysis will also be covered in the FMECA training with the use of real-life examples.

FMECA Fundamentals:

Following is some of basic idea of FMECA, which we will discuss in the TONEX FMECA training:

  • Operating document
  • Identifying and recording all the potential failure modes
  • Analyzing the impact of each mode
  • Determining the frequency of the modes
  • Analyzing the seriousness of the effects
  • Root cause analysis
  • Incorporating the already known modes recorded in database
  • Developing corrective actions
  • Evaluating the impact of the changes stress levels

Some of the FMECA Applications:

  • Identifying failures affecting the desired quality or expectations
  • Identifying hazardous areas, or those that are not compatible with regulations
  • To focus on where is needed the most
  • To help with the design built-in test and failure indicators
  • To prepare diagnostic flow charts
  • For maintenance planning
  • To identify the areas where the quality control, inspection, testing, and control systems should be focused on
  • To prepare a structured and firm study of the process


TONEX with a record of offering and delivering high quality training for more than 15 years and having the experience of consulting prestigious private and governmental clients is the best choice for you to receive FMECA training. Our instructors work hard to make sure you finish the training with sufficient knowledge and skills required to develop and execute an FMECA relevant to the nature of the product or process you are involved in.

In addition, TONEX FMECA training includes many in-class activities including hands on exercises, case studies and workshops. During the FMECA workshops, students bring in their own design work and issues and through our coaching, develop their own FMECA Failure Mode and Effects Criticality Analysis (FMECA).

Who Should Attend?

The TONEX FMECA Training, Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis Training is a 2-day course designed for:

  • Cross functional team members
  • Internal auditors
  • Quality team members
  • New product development managers
  • R&D personnel
  • All individuals who are involved in the process of prioritizing reliability improvement and/or determining the potential failure modes and suitable inhibitory actions.
