    Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)

    Date: TBC (Virtual)
    Length: 1 Day

    Course Overview:

    Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), is an analytical method to ensure potential problems have been considered, assessed for risk and actioned as part of both product and process design. It provides a record of an organisations collective knowledge about products and processes.  It is widely used in many industrial sectors such as automotive, aerospace, renewable energy and mobile power generation.

    Benefits and Learning Objectives:

    FMEA is used to support the introduction of new products and processes as well as supporting changes to existing products and processes.
    It is often mandated by automotive, aerospace and other engineering primary manufacturers as a specific requirement to support the goal of defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste.
    Companies that apply FMEA successfully, see improved product conformity, better on time delivery performance and a reduction in the cost of non-quality.
    Delegates will become competent in creating and analysing design and process FMEA’s and develop an understanding of the methods to implement Failure Mode and Effects Analysis within their organisation.

    Topics covered:

    • Overview of the FMEA process
    • General review of FMEA principles
    • Design FMEA including start points
    • Process FMEA including start points
    • FMEA ranking tables and scoring


    Who should attend:

    This course is designed for Management Representatives, Implementation Teams, Internal Auditors and others who are involved in the implementation or auditing of Failure Mode and Effects Analysis


    Please note: This training is based on the AIAG 4th edition which remains current and applicable to industry; we will include some references to the new AIAG/VDA approach to outline the main differences. Delegates will need to attend either the AIAG/VDA Combined FMEA Awareness Training or AIAG & VDA Process FMEA: Transitioning for Practitioners course to fully understand the differences in approach.



    Upon completion of the course you will receive an Industry Forum certificate of attendance.
