In-Person Training consists of public classes conducted by one of our subject matter experts at one of our designated locations in one or more consecutive days.
People from quality, manufacturing, engineering, purchasing or marketing will benefit from this Failure Mode and Effects Analysis class, in understanding the cases for when to apply the FMEA process (new design or process, modifications to existing design or process, or use of existing design or process in a new application).
This program provides a fundamental and practical review of Failure Mode and Effects Analysis. FMEA is an excellent quality tool to use with any quality system. While the general benefits of Process FMEA are similar to those of Design FMEA, the specific benefit is that you will learn to use these powerful tools effectively to improve processes in your organization.
