Failure Modes and Effects Analysis Training Course description

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a tool that can identify product and process failures before they occur, identify appropriate risk mitigation measures to prevent or otherwise control the failure, and improve product and process design. All product and process failures (and the actions required to control these failures) are predictable and preventable; however, organizations frequently experience predictable and preventable failures with costly consequences. These failures can lead to product recalls, death or injury, poor quality, and unanticipated cost.

The aerospace and defense industries have used FMEA for decades. FMEA has made significant inroads into automotive, biomedical device, and many other industries. Your organization can benefit greatly from this analysis tool. This Failure Modes and Effects Analysis Training course utilizes real-life case studies to help you apply this toolkit effectively to your job. The ENO Failure Modes and Effects Analysis program is an intense 16-hour course that will teach your staff how to prepare FMEAs for your products and processes.

Duration: 2-3 days

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of Failure Modes and Effects Analysis Training, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
