Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a valuable tool for preventing failure in both product and process design. FMEA is not a form to be completed alone by the responsible engineer after the design has been completed. FMEA should be planned to coincide with product development when risks can be mitigated to an acceptable level in advance of product or process release.
FMEA Training is part of a successful FMEA strategy. A FMEA strategy is comprised of three elements:
- Commitment to the prevention of failure using FMEA
- Acquisition of knowledge of FMEA and its proper use
- Practice of efficient FMEA development using a clear method and process
This website provides guidelines for selecting suitable FMEA Training and FMEA Facilitation resources, as well as solutions to typical FMEA development obstacles. FMEA Training should be customized to fit the requirements of a customer and provide workshop content related to their specific industry as well as their particular needs.
