2-Day Proactive Failure Management using FMEA (Failure Mode Effect and Analysis) Course

Course Overview

This course is created, owned, and trained by its original creator,  Ms. Swing Goh. Learn from the original creator.

FMEA is a systematic approach guiding the organization to prevent quality issues and indicate areas where improvements are probable, and control is required.  Applicable to many industries (beyond manufacturing sector), FMEA is a simple yet powerful tool which can help reduce proactively reduce the product/service failures that affect customers experience.

This two-day course is designed to help learners evaluate potential failure modes for processes and their likely effect on outcomes and/or service performance.  Once failure modes are established, risk reduction can be used to eliminate, contain, reduce, or control the potential failures.  The output of FMEA can also be used as a basis for design, for further analysis, or as a guide for resource deployment.

Upon completion of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Understand the purpose of an FMEA and the benefits of using FMEAS in both design and process situations
  • Develop and implement an FMEA using a 14 steps approach
  • Contribute effectively to an FMEA team
  • Customize FMEA rating scales and identify potential risks
  • Common pitfalls and keys to successful implementation of FMEAS

This workshop is suitable for process owners who are involved in the development, implementation and follow up of processes as an improvement tool in continuous improvement initiatives.

Learners are guided through practical steps of the topic with a combination of case studies, interactive games/exercises, group activities, discussions and Q&A sessions.
