Overview

Failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) is a logical process based methodology for identifying all possible failures in process or product. It can be applied to services and business processes as well as product design and manufacturing processes.

A properly executed FMEA should result in corrective actions to address failures that have been observed as well as preventive actions to enable avoidance of potential failure modes that have been discovered.

Gain a working knowledge of the FMEA process for products, processes, or systems in this one-day class. A failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) helps analyze a proposed or existing process or product to uncover potential failures within the product, process, or system before they occur. The introductions and hands-on classes will teach you how to construct and analyze both product and process FMEAs.
