Process FMEA – Failure Mode and Effect Analysis – is an established technique for preventing problems. It is mandatory in some industries. Although valuable, it can degenerate into a lengthy debate about risk levels rather than attacking its real purpose – the identification of unknown problems.
This course shows how to focus on the genuine value-added aspects of PFMEA, to get the most out of the people you invite to the FMEA session, and to do it in the least time.
The course is fully compatible with QS9000 FMEA requirements.
Who should attend?
People who need to anticipate problems with new and changed processes.
Participants are encouraged to bring data on a current process. They can work on this while achieving an understanding of PFMEA.
Goal of PFMEA
Dangers to avoid, e.g.
Step One: Focus on high risk processes
Identify high risk areas, e.g. things which are…
Step Two: Search for unknown problems
Step Three: Assess the risks
Step Four: Reduce risk
Time tips to speed up your PFMEA

Shared learning task to reinforce knowledge of goals, terminology and method.
Participants work together to anticipate real problems on their own processes.
