Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) - Jul 23-24, 2019 - Westford, MA

Course Overview

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a powerful technique for avoiding process problems and preventing defects in products and services.  The use of FMEA helps to anticipate and guide action to prevent failures in both design and process performance.

In this intensive two-day workshop, you will learn to estimate the probability of failures and their causes in your product, process and machine designs.  You will also learn effective techniques to plan for identifying and minimizing defects in both manufacturing and service processes.

During hands-on workshops, you will perform both design and process FMEA's on your own designs and process issues, present the results of your analyses, and plan future applications of FMEA when you return to work.  At the end of this program, you will have a new tool set that you can apply right away to manage risk and prevent failures in your organization’s designs and processes.   

The seminar workbook includes a copy of "Guidelines for Performing a Design and Process FMEA," a handy reference for use during and after the workshop.  This document also serves as a template for drafting a company-specific FMEA policy and procedures for your own organization.
