FAILURE MODE AND EFFECT ANALYSIS(FMEA)

Two Days Work Shop Presented By CTRI (CT Research Institute)

Research and Training wing of Western Thomson Group

COURSE OBJECTIVE

Potential Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an analytical methodology used to ensure that potential problems are considered and addressed throughout the product and process development process. FMEA identifies the ways in which a product or process can fail, estimates the risk associated with specific causes and prioritizes the actions that should be taken to reduce the risk. Design FMEA focuses on product development and Process FMEA focuses on process development.

In this work shop, both DFMEA and PFMEA are explained step by step through numerous examples and work practices. This workshop would help the participants to understand FMEA concepts clearly and use them effectively in their work place for product and process development.
