This course explores the lean tool of Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA/FMECA) a universal method for assessing underlying risk of a plant, process or system. It is a fundamental tool for any engineer and we will demonstrate how it can be applied to improve the reliability of a plant or system. We explore the FMEA process in detail and identifying ways to accelerate the process through educated assumptions, whilst focusing on the value adding steps of delivering a more reliable plant
The content of this course is based around and industry recognized International Standard for The Study of Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA/FMECA) EN 60812.
A key element of the course is walking through a working example from start to finish. The tools and templates introduced and used during the course will be available to the students so they can embark on their own FMEA studies.
Course Philosophy and Approach:
I use the methodology and tools taught in this course in my core job as an Engineering Reliability Manager. The content is designed to be comprehensive but also concise with practical examples – I am a firm believer that students should not have to sift through hours of online content to extract the key points.
