Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) Training Course & Consultancy


A Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a systematic method to:

  • Recognise and evaluate the potential failure of a product/process and its effects
  • Identify actions which could eliminate or reduce the chance of the potential failure occurring
  • Document the process activity/product function

A process FMEA identifies process deficiencies to enable process experts to focus on controls for reducing the occurrence of producing unacceptable outputs (products and services) or on methods to increase the detection of unacceptable outputs.

A design FMEA aids in the objective evaluation of design requirements and design alternatives and increases the probability that potential failure modes and their effects on product and service delivery have been considered at the design/development stage.

Our Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) training is ordinarily delivered over a single day.
