Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA)

This course addresses Concept, Design and Process FMEAs that broaden the scope of the this recommended technique used for identification of potential failure modes. Also emphasizes the interfaces and interactions of the components, systems and subsystems, how they are directly connected, and how they interact with the surrounding environment. General guidelines are given and intended to cover situations normally encountered when preparing FMEAs during the various phases of the analysis

  • Defining the purpose and scope of an FMEA.
    When and Why do we have to do an FMEA?
    The mechanics of the standard format.
    Who does this and who is responsible?
    Objectives of the Design and Process FMEAs.
    Defining the failure.
    Which is the failure mode and which is the effect?
    Determining the Risk Priority Numbers.
    Are we done yet? Management Review.

Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA)

This course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the importance of MSA in controlling and improving the production process and to give students a practical knowledge of using statistical methods in analyzing the measurement system.
