Hotel & Travel Information

This interactive Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) product and process seminar introduces the participant to the analytical process by which potential failure modes, failure effects and causes of failure are identified. Engaging in a systematic method of studying failure can improve future outcomes. The severity, occurrence and probability of detection of a failure mode are used to prioritize which failure modes are most critical. Methodology is introduced for dealing with the effects of failure. The Design FMEA link to manufacturing is explained and amplified in terms of downstream Process FMEA. This course is based on "learning by doing" with interactive, in-class Design and Process FMEA generation and analysis in a lively team environment. This course will also detail relevant portions of the SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice for FMEA, ARP 5580 which is included in the course materials.

Learning Objectives
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:

  • List the benefits, requirements and objectives of an FMEA (both Product Design & Process)
  • Explain the steps and methodology used to analyze a Design or Process FMEA
  • Demonstrate the application of a variety of tools utilized in conjunction with performing an FMEA
  • Identify corrective actions or controls and their importance in minimizing or preventing failure occurrence
  • Interpret the objectives of the SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice for FMEA, ARP5580

Who Should Attend
This seminar is designed for the design engineer, process assurance engineer, reliability engineer, test engineer, quality engineer, development engineer, logistics/support engineer, manufacturing engineer and their management or anyone responsible for the design and development of design or manufacturing, assembly or service processes in the completion of a Design or Process FMEA.

Prerequisites
Attendees should possess a basic understanding of the design principles/process and manufacturing/assembly process.
