Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a powerful technique for avoiding process problems and preventing defects in products and services. The use of FMEA helps to anticipate and guide action to prevent failures in both design and process performance.
During FMEA Consulting you will learn to estimate the probability of failures and their causes in your product, process and machine designs. You will also learn effective techniques to plan for identifying and minimizing defects in both manufacturing and service processes.
Using hands-on techniques, you will perform both design and process FMEAs on your own designs and process issues, present the results of your analyses, and plan future applications of FMEA. At the end, you will have a new toolset that you can apply right away to prevent failures in your organization’s designs and processes.
FMEA Consulting includes a copy of Guidelines for Performing a Design and Process FMEA, a handy reference for use during the workshop. This Guideline also serves as a template for drafting a company-specific FMEA policy and procedures for your own organization.
Benefits of FMEA Consulting
Following are benefits realized and reported by companies following the effective application and Design and Process FMEA.
- Addresses critical failure modes early in the design cycle
- Makes development plans more robust by addressing actions to reduce risk and increase yield before failures occur
- Fewer ECOs (engineering change orders)
- Faster time to market
- Reduced scrap and rework
- Fewer customer complaints
- Reduced warranty failures and costs
- Increased productivity
- Improved communications
- Increased profits
- Increased market share
- Reduction of product recalls
