Access Period: 30 days
Duration: 6 Hours

The new J1739 has been revised to address common problems with the application of Process FMEA today. Such problems include the time spent debating ranking systems, potential problems hidden in the Risk Priority Number, false starts and rework of FMEA because of a lack of understanding of product and process functions, and a lack of emphasis on prevention controls or early detection of problems.

This course is not intended to cover all of the details of completing a Process FMEA. Rather, its focus is on recent changes from the former J1739 FMEA Recommended Practice to the new J1739 FMEA Standard and how those familiar with performing Process FMEA should adjust their approach.

Is this Webinar Recording for You?
Manufacturing engineers, product engineers, quality engineers, supplier quality engineers, validation and test engineers, and FMEA facilitators, trainers and consultants primarily in, but not limited to, the utomotive industry may be interested in the update this webinar offers. Beginning engineers and advanced/senior engineers who must participate in FMEA, as well as those that manage FMEA activity, will also gain valuable insights.

If you have a copy of the SAE J1739 standard, we recommend that you have it at hand for all three sessions of the webinar. If you do not own the standard and wish to purchase a copy, go to SAE J1739 Standard.

By connecting with this webinar recording, you will be able to:

  • Identify new PFMEA requirements that must be fulfilled by management
  • Find answers to most PFMEA questions in J1739
  • Align ideas within the logical framework of the PFMEA worksheet
  • Apply new risk assessment evaluation criteria to the PFMEA
  • Compare the differences between using Risk Priority Number thresholds with using other risk assessment criterion such as the use of Severity and Occurrence when prioritizing actions for risk mitigation


Session 1

  • Introduction and Potential Failure Analysis
    • Concerns about FMEA usage
    • Key change points applicable to Process FMEA
    • How to use J1739
    • Terms and definitions
    • Pre-Analysis preparation
    • PFMEA product and process functions and requirements
    • Failure Modes and Effects
    • Failure Causes
    • Current process controls – prevention
    • Current process controls – detection
Session 2
  • Risk Assessment
    • Severity ranking criteria – emphasis on vehicle level
    • Occurrence ranking criteria – the change that impacts the RPN immediately
    • Detection ranking criteria – emphasis on method and location of evaluation
    • Risk Priority Numbers – secrets RPN won't tell
    • Severity x Occurrence – back to the beginning
    • Severity AND Occurrence – go for a meaning, not a number
    • Other risk assessment criteria
Session 3
  • Risk Mitigation
    • FMEA general requirements
    • PFMEA outputs
    • PFMEA form and example
    • Special characteristics and PFMEA
    • Writing effective action plans to mitigate risk
