Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)

Course Overview

It’s rightly said that prevention is better than cure! The Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) was developed in the aerospace industry in 1960 as the systematic method through which designs and weaknesses of processes could be identified and investigated.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate and manage the risk in product designing as well as the process design
  • Identify the actions, recognize the potential areas and evaluate those areas to decrease the ratio of risk in system failure

Course Content

  • Introduction - purpose, background and benefits
  • Steps involved in FMEA designing
  • Planning of project
  • Design intent, modes of failure, effects on the customers
  • Causes of failure
  • Calculation of Risk Priority Number (RPN)
  • Verification of project
  • Overview of the process of FMEA designing
  • FMEA designing implementation
  • Where FMEA can be applied?
  • Common mistakes

Course Methodology

The training is going to be highly interactive combination of lectures, group discussions, questionnaires, individual reflections, role plays, simulations and videos.

Target Audience

This course is for those individuals who are involved in designing of the products, processes or services with specification in improving the business or management of process improvement. Managers who wish to understand FMEA benefits before implementation of the business and the team members that are included in the support role will also benefit from the course.


2 Days (08:30–14:30) with appropriate breaks for tea/refreshments and lunch.
