Read Frequently Asked Questions

This 90-minute webinar will cover the best industry practices for Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA). You will learn what mistakes to avoid, how to reduce design and manufacturing defects, and how to implement risk management efficiently.

Course "The Use and Mis-use of FMEA in Medical Device Risk Management" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 1.5 RAC credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

Why Should You Attend:

FMEA is one of the most important tools for risk management according to the ISO 14971 standard because it identifies known and unknown risks very early when the cost of reducing risks is very low. It can reveal missing requirements, vague requirements, missing functions, and point out component and manufacturing problems well before process validation. These in turn reduce life cycle costs and reduce the time to market. But, the tool has several inherent traps that should be recognized and avoided.

This 90-minute presentation covers the best industry practices in using Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA). You will learn about what mistakes to avoid, how to reduce design and manufacturing defects, and how to implement risk management efficiently. Several case examples will be presented to give a hands-on feel to attendees.
