Design and Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
I.D. # C1510 Duration 2 Days

This course covers the five types of FMEAs with emphasis on constructing  Design and Process FMEAs. Each column of the FMEA document will be clearly explained using an actual FMEA example.  The course covers various methods for identifying failure modes, effects and causes with special attention given to severity, occurrence, and detection tables and how to develop effective recommended actions strategies.  Throughout the class, participants will be involved in exercises/actual projects that demonstrate and incorporate direct application of learned principles.
