Applied Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Workshop, Safety Critical Process Analysis

Applied Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Workshop, Safety Critical Process Analysis covers the FMEA approach, a structured way to identify and address potential problems, or failures and their resulting effects on the system or safety process before an adverse event occurs. Root cause analysis (RCA) is on the other hand a structured way to address problems after they occur. FMEA involves identifying and eliminating process failures for the purpose of preventing an undesirable event when it comes to safety.

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an essential part of any safety process or product design or redesign activity. FMEA is a proactive, quantitative, qualitative, step-by-step approach for identifying and analyzing all potential points of failure in any product or service. This team-based activity can dramatically improve product performance. It can also reduce manufacturing issues at the component, system, and processing level.

By attending this customized FMEA training course for Safety Management Group, FMEA for Safety Critical Design Processes are discussed and the attendees will learn how to examine processes in any of the specific safety areas to proactively reduce risks to safety and improve quality of processes. FMEA can be used to identify gaps and develop actions to make the safety process more efficient and reliable.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Describe what the FMEA is and how it is used
  • Develop skills to perform FMEA
  • Differentiate applied FMEA to design, process, products and components
  • Apply the major elements of FMEA approach to safety analysis
  • Demonstrate ability to complete a FMEA to safety analysis
  • Compare and contrast FMEA to Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Event Tree Analysis (ETA), Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP), Common Cause Failure Analysis (CCFA),, Operational/Support Hazard Analysis (OSHA), Cause Consequence Analysis (CCA), Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) and Petri Nets (PN)
