Course Description

Course Code : BMBA2020

This course is designed for participants who have a general appreciation of quality methods.

Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) enables companies to reduce the risk of failure occurrence by anticipating and preventing defects in manufacture/processes.

Companies supplying the automotive industry, or seeking compliance and registration to ISO/TS 16949, are required to use FMEA techniques to achieve product assurance, but the techniques are equally applicable to all other market sectors.

This interactive and practical course will provide delegates with a basic knowledge of the FMEA methodology, how to apply it to product and process design, and demonstrates how the results of the FMEA are used to define the requirements for:

  • An effective product validation plan
  • An effective control plan for the manufacturing process.

What you will gain
Through the combination of interactive tutorials and workshops, our course will enable the delegates to:

  • Produce an FMEA
  • Fit an FMEA into the overall production and process design
  • Communicate why the FMEA should be regularly updated
  • Understand the business need for process FMEA
  • Use FMEA methodology defining the:
  • Customer’s expectations and requirements
  • Potential failure modes, consequences of failure
  • Methods of detection and prevention
  • Evaluating the “risk” and prioritising areas for improvement
  • Implementing corrective actions in process design
