Failure Mode and Effect Analysis




Course Overview

Beginning in the early 1980s, the skyrocketing of product liability cost and non-ending court activities made the FMEA become a vital tool in the occurrence of failures. Since then, the FMEA process has been spreading among the fortune 500 companies. This has been transitioned from in-house concerns to supply base. In 1993, the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) which includes, and the American Society of Quality Control adopted a standard approach to FMEAs

FMEA is an analytical technique used to ensure that potential problems in product design or process have been considered and addressed. Ideally, a Design FMEA should be carried out in the early stages of design and a process FMEA should be carried out before tooling or manufacturing equipment is purchased. FMEA can also be applied to non-production areas. FMEA tools are widely used by Fortune 500 companies and finds particularly wider use in automobile (e.g. Ford, GM and Chrysler) and engineering industries.

The one day training course will allow the participants to understand first hand the process of FMEAs. It shall allow them to understand the objectives, benefits and limitations of FMEAs.
