Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a systematic method for preventing failure through the discovery and mitigation of potential failure modes and their cause mechanisms. Actions are developed in a team environment and address each high: severity, occurrence or detection ranking indicated by the analysis. Completed FMEA actions result in improved product performance, reduced warranty and increased product quality. This course assists FMEA team members to apply severity, occurrence and detection rankings consistently and efficiently and explores, in detail, the linkage of the Design FMEA and the Process FMEA through special characteristics development and product and process design collaboration. The relationships between FMEA and other popular tools, including Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Design Verification Plan and Report (DVP&R) and Control Plans will also be discussed. Participants can expect dynamic "hands-on" activities with in-class Design and Process FMEA creation, facilitation skill development and risk analysis best practices.

Engineers are taught to create designs that meet customer specifications. When creating these designs, the focus is usually on the nominal values rather than variation. Robustness refers to creating designs that are insensitive to variability in the inputs. Much of the literature on robustness is dedicated to experimental techniques, particularly Taguchi techniques, which advocate using experiments with replications to estimate variation. This course presents mathematical formulas based on derivatives to determine system variation based on input variation and knowledge of the engineering function. If the function is unknown, experimental techniques are presented to efficiently estimate a function. The concept of designing for both nominal values and variability is expanded to multiple outputs and designing to minimizing costs. Traditionally, if the output variation is too large to meet requirements, the tolerances (variation) of the inputs are reduced. Using the approach presented in this course, the equations presented can be used to identify the contribution of each of the inputs to the output variation.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been used by engineers as a design tool in new product development since the early 1990's. Until recently, most FEA applications have been limited to static analysis due to the cost and complexity of advanced types of analyses. Progress in the commercial FEA software and in computing hardware has now made it practical to use advanced types as an everyday design tool of design engineers. In addition, competitive pressures and quality requirements demand a more in-depth understanding of product behavior under real life loading conditions. This course will enable participants to expand the scope of FEA to vibration analysis to simulate product behavior under those conditions. This six-session web seminar introduces vibration analysis performed with Finite Element Analysis (FEA). By considering time-dependent loads and inertial and damping effects, vibration analysis allows for a more in-depth product simulation thus reducing product development cost and time.
