Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

During initial phase, Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a method used to analyze every process step to determine: Potential Failure Mode; Potential Effects of Failure; Severity Scale (1 to 10); Class (I Use Reliability from Process Reliability Modeling); Potential Causes of Failure; Occurrence Scale (1 to 10); Current Process Control (Prevention); Current Process Control (Detection); Detection Scale (1 to 10) and Risk Priority Number.

FMEA control phase includes: Recommended Actions; Responsibility and Target Completion Date, Actions Taken; Severity; Occurrence; Detection and Risk Priority Number.

Process Reliability Modeling (RPM) analyzes all processes by department to determine the likelihood of passing work through each process step without issues. Processes with low ratings are analyzed using FMEA for improvement.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Explain how FMEA’s fit within a risk management system
  • Create FMEA to include risk identification, risk analysis, risk estimation and risk control
  • Identify potential failures and their effects
  • Prioritize failure modes
  • Create action plans to eliminate or control risks
  • Define types of FMEA’s
  • The important benefits of FMEA
  • Be familiar with components of FMEA
  • Understand process requirements
  • Explanation of the principles of risk analysis
  • FMEA’s at the design stage
  • FMEA’s of processes
  • Identification of causes and effects of failure
  • How to manage designated personnel with the skills to conduct and complete an FMEA of products or processes
  • How to select cross-functional teams
  • Case studies of typical situations and applications

Topic Background:

A structured approach for failure analysis; FMEA was developed by reliability engineers in the late 1950s to analyze problems of military systems. Today FMEAs are used in most industries for analysis.

Traditional methods of process improvement demonstrate high failure rates: Business Process Reengineering (BPR) 50% to 85%, Total Quality Management (TQM) 75%, and Six Sigma 90%. FMEA combined with Process Reliability Modeling (PRM) will increase odds of success. Average organizations Sigma Score is 3 which means the cost of poor quality as a percentage of sales varies 25-40%. With FMEA and PRM cost of quality can be improved to 4-Sigma (15-25%) or 5-Sigma (5-15%) resulting in significant increase in organizations bottom line.
