Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA)

The Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) workshop is application-based and engages participants through exercises and discussion. Exercises can be tailored to actual production processes. When the workshop is tailored to actual production processes, participants should bring:

  • The process flow diagram or work routing for the process under review
  • Historical quality measures (e.g., scrap, rework, FTQ, warranty, etc.)
  • Error proofing, gaging and inspection plans
  • An actual sample part (as long as size and/or weight permits)

This workshop is appropriate for individuals who are directly involved with the manufacturing line, especially operators, skilled trades, engineers and quality staff.

Training ideally should take place in the manufacturing area under review. If necessary, it can also be conducted at a suitable off-site location.
