Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) C2020


This seminar is offered in China only and presented in Mandarin Chinese. The course materials are bilingual (English and Chinese).

This seminar will introduce the latest version (2019) of Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Handbook with a focus on DFMEA and PFMEA building. Each column of the FMEA document will also be explained in detail with FMEA examples.The seminar also includes an introduction to the logic for identifying technical risks and thinking tools for risk mitigation. In addition, various methods to identify the failure chain will be elaborated on, especially the changes in the severity, incidence and detection degree of risks and the application of AP priority. Suggestions for improving common mistakes in the implementation of FMEA for companies will also be provided. Throughout the seminar, students are expected to do exercises and practical projects, and demonstrate and apply what they have learned.
