Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a structured approach to discovering potential failures that may exist within the design of a product or process.
A failure mode refers to the ways (modes) in which something might fail. Failures are any errors or defects, especially ones that affect the customer, and can be potential or actual. Effects analysis, on the other hand, is a reference to studying the consequences of those failures.
Failures are prioritized according to how serious their consequences are, how frequently they occur, and how easily they can be detected. The purpose of the FMEA is to take actions to eliminate or reduce failures, starting with the highest-priority ones.
Failure Modes and Effects Analysis also documents current knowledge and actions about the risks of failures, for use in continuous improvement. FMEA is used during design to prevent failures. Later it’s used for control, before and during ongoing operation of the process.
Normally, organizations prefer that FMEA begins during the earliest conceptual stages of design and continues throughout the life of the product or service.
While the name may sound intimidating, what it comes down to is this: FMEA is simply a process for identifying issues in advance so organizations can fix them before they turn into major problems.
It’s important to keep in mind that FMEA is not a substitute for good engineering. FMEA is meant as a compliment to good engineering by applying the knowledge and experience of a Cross Functional Team (CFT) to review the design progress of a product or process by assessing its risk of failure.
The two broad categories of FMEA are called:
- Design FMEA (DFMEA)
- Process FMEA (PFMEA)
Design FMEA is a systematic group of activities used to recognize and evaluate potential systems, products or process failures. DFMEA identifies the effects and outcomes of these failures or actions. It eliminates or mitigates the failures and provides a written history of the work performed.
FMEA Training Course by Tonex
FMEA Training, Failure Mode and Effects Analysis training 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 will learn how to choose tools and manage projects and teams to effectively carry out FMEA processes.
FMEA training will teach the 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. FMEA is a product development (or process analysis) tool used to anticipate modes of failure and mitigate potential risk.
FMEA training is a recommended training course designed for:
- System and software engineers
- System designers
- Process engineer
- Manufacturing supervisor
- Product engineer
FMEA Training Content
FMEA training will cover systematic analysis of the systems to whatever level of detail is required to demonstrate that no single failure will cause an undesired event.
FMEA training course will assist the attendees with the skills to conduct and complete an FMEA of products or processes along with process, product or service changes and modifications.
FMEA Training, failure mode and effect analysis course is a comprehensive training program covering foundation of FMEA, Design FMEA, Process FMEA and Software FMEA.
The FMEA training is excellent for professionals with any level of understanding of the subject. This FMEA training course covers the process of conducting system, design, redesign, process, service, and machine FMEAs. It provides the rationale for doing so. FMEA training attendees will understand what FMEA is, the different types of FMEA, how to construct an FMEA, and the linkages between FMEA and other tools such as ISO 9000:2000 standard, the Six Sigma approach.
Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) training covers the details on addressing reliability during the early stages of design and shows the attendees how this method can help to improve design decisions and product quality during operation. We demonstrate a new way of organizing FMEA based on both the products function-structure relationship and the Voice of the Customer (VOC).
The importance of Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) in product, system, design, process, or software is the main reason for effective FMEA Training by Tonex.
Tonex FMEA Training can be customized for your organization and includes tools, methods, procedures, best practices, lessons learned using the best practices and methods for different industries along with the hands-on experience through the FMEA workshop. Attendees can bring their own problems to solve.
Tonex basic FMEA, Design FMEA (DFMEA) Training, Process FMEA (PFMEA) Training and FMECA Training prepares the attendees with creative and innovative development process, team and role play and the working on FMEA process hands-on.
Learn how Process FMEA starts as a documented analysis implemented to help prevent and/or detect process problems and their causes: identify concerns with the sources of variation and then define and take corrective action. Process FMEA will help you to access risk or the likelihood of significant problem, troubleshoot problems with tools such as Process flow diagram with brief description of the manufacturing process or operation.
