Effective, engaging, practical course in Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)

A process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) helps identify process weaknesses, allowing experts to prioritise controls that minimize the occurrence of producing unsatisfactory outputs, which is why FMEA training is vital. It also focuses on enhancing detection methods for identifying unacceptable outputs.

On the other hand, a design FMEA facilitates an unbiased assessment of design requirements and alternatives. It ensures that potential failure modes and their impact on product and service delivery are thoroughly evaluated during the design and development phase.

In this comprehensive training program, participants will learn a systematic approach to conducting Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) through a Virtual or online format. The course covers the importance of FMEA in preventive action programs, its methodologies, and implementation. Through interactive sessions, attendees will define FMEA objectives, analyze potential failure causes and effects, assess risks, and develop preventive action plans. The course includes practical exercises, real-life examples, quizzes, an editable FMEA excel template, and a complimentary 2-month access to the online FMEA training course.

About this course

Prevention is always preferable to dealing with the consequences later on! Originally developed in the 1960s for the aerospace industry, Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a systematic approach for identifying and investigating potential weaknesses in design or processes.

Join our online or Virtual or In house FMEA training course to become a master of Failure Mode Effects Analysis. This technical risk analysis tool helps assess and prioritize risks associated with product or process failures, enabling effective mitigation strategies.

By the course’s completion, you will possess the skills to conduct a thorough Failure Mode Effects Analysis. Whether you’re a member or leader of an analysis team utilising methodologies like Lean Six Sigma, this analysis technique will greatly aid your problem-solving efforts.

Following this training course you will be able to explain what you do at work as a process, visually illustrate processes throughout your company and make improvements that highlight your role as an invaluable resource in your company.

Business Process Mapping is ideal for anyone who needs an understanding of the various different process mapping techniques. Each approach is clearly explained so that you can pick the best level of mapping for your needs.

You do not need any experience of Business Improvement to take this course.

What will I learn?

Our FMEA training courses will explain not only what FMEA is but walk you through the completion of Process and Design FMEA’s.

FMEA is most noticeably used in industries where there is a serious risk associated with failure, such as aviation, the Armed Forces, space exploration & manufacturing. However, it is also common across the rest of industry where failures may not be so dangerous but could be hugely expensive or very damaging to the company.

During this course, you will cover the following FMEA topics:
