Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)


Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a technique used in an attempt to assure that potential failure modes and their associated causes have been addressed. As such, FMEA is a requirement of TS 16949 and is a useful analytical tool for design and quality engineers outside the automotive industry as well.

This program provides participants with the necessary information, guidance and prerequisite knowledge to take failure mode data from both current and prior processes to prevent occurrence of those failure modes in the future.

Program Contents:

• Detailed introduction to Failure Mode and Effects Analysis

• Identification of potential benefits of FMEA

• Key elements of both the design FMEA as well as Process FMEA

• Review of reporting requirements and associated forms

• Evaluation criteria

• Development of recommended actions and follow-ups

• Practical applications of FMEA taught through use of classroom exercises and workshops

Who Should Attend:

  • Personnel on TS 16949 cross-functional teams.
  • Design and quality engineers.

Program Duration and Cost:

1-day program, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
