Aim and Course 

Failure Mode Effect Analysis is the primary tool used in industry to assess risk both at product design and development stage, and during manufacturing. The overall objective of the analysis is to ensure that the product delivered to the customer is free of defects and will perform to specification.

In this introduction to FMEA the tutor will use a real FMEA case study to explain in detail the procedure to be followed when undertaking the analysis and how FMEA is used to assess risk at product design and manufacturing stages. This includes the steps to be followed in determining the Risk Priority Number (RPN) and examples of actions taken to eliminate/reduce the risk of failure.

The session will include

  • Design and Process FMEA’s
  • Forming the FMEA team and utilising effective brainstorming techniques
  • Case studies illustrating the development of a design FMEA and a process FMEA.
  • Identification of the causes and effects of failure.
  • Determining and understanding the Risk Priority Number (RPN).
  • The benefit of effective corrective actions in reducing the RPN

Who should attend?

Those is product, process, design, quality engineers, production management, R&D Engineers and Scientists.
