Failure Mode Effects Analysis


Instructor: Michael Abitz
Product ID: 705333

  • Duration: 60 Min
This webinar will explain how to create Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) by combining Effective Information Collection (EIC), Process Reliability Modeling (PRM) and Failure Mode Effect Criticality Analysis (FMECA). It will also cover the methods for determining root causes of process problems and effective tools for repair of ineffective processes.
Last Recorded Date: Sep-2019

Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Ineffective process management will result in significant loss to organizations bottom line. The amount of loss depends upon your organizations Sigma Score, for example, a Sigma Score of 3 suggests a loss of 25% to 40% of sales (Sigma Scores vary from 2 to 6). A score of 6 suggests less than 1% of sales dollars are lost.

Traditional methods of Process Improvement demonstrate high failure rates: Business Process Reengineering (BPR) 50% to 85%, Total Quality Management (TQM) 75%, Six Sigma 50% to 90%, and Lean Six Sigma 50% to 95%.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • How to justify and select improvement projects
  • Improvement team selection
  • Unbiased qualitative information collection
  • Locate potential failure modes with Process Reliability Modeling
  • How to Construct FMECA Table
  • Identify Process Root Causes with Reality Charting
  • The Model for Improvement
  • Example of Results

Who Will Benefit:

This training is useful for all the individuals who want to learn process variation countermeasures. It would be ideal for:

  • Strategic Leaders
  • Quality Managers
  • Product Managers
  • Manufacturing and R&D Managers
  • Quality Professionals/Consultants
  • ISO Coordinators/Management Representatives
  • Engineers and Supervisors
  • Laboratory quality professionals

Topic Background:

A structured approach for failure analysis; FMEA was developed by reliability engineers in the late 1950s to analyze problems of military systems. Today FMEAs are used in most industries for analysis.

Traditional methods of process improvement demonstrate high failure rates: Business Process Reengineering (BPR) 50% to 85%, Total Quality Management (TQM) 75%, and Six Sigma 90%. FMEA combined with Process Reliability Modeling (PRM) will increase odds of success. Average organizations Sigma Score is 3 which means the cost of poor quality as a percentage of sales varies 25-40%. With FMEA and PRM cost of quality can be improved to 4-Sigma (15-25%) or 5-Sigma (5-15%) resulting in significant increase in organizations bottom line.
