Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA)

FMEA 5th Edition training will be announced soon!

Quality management system (QMS) standards include direct and indirect references to FMEA. Please refer to the following documents:

  • IATF 16949:2016, Page 30, Clause Design and development of products and services-supplemental and Page 38, Clause Control plan
  • ISO 9001:2015, Page 21, A.4 (informative) Risk-based thinking

FMEA can be described as a systematic group of activities intended to:

  1. recognize and evaluate the potential failure(s) of a product or a process and the effects of these failure(s) on the organization and the customer,
  2. identify actions (controls) that could eliminate or reduce the chance of the potential failure(s) from occurring, and
  3. document the entire process.

FMEA is complementary to the process of defining what a design or process must do to satisfy the customer. All FMEA's focus on design and development, whether it be of the product, or process. Effective FMEA depends on top management's commitment to the effort required in achieving customer satisfaction.

Some of the benefits of FMEA:

  • Significant product design and process design improvements
  • Risks analyzed and appropriate preventive actions to mitigate risks implemented
  • Prevention of product and process nonconformities
  • Quality products and services realized, at the lowest possible cost, delivered on time

Jan Roovers Associates, Inc. has trained hundreds of design and process engineers as well as people in manufacturing and quality control in the development and application of Design and Process FMEA's. We encourage our course participants to bring their FMEA's to the course. Our willingness to review and discuss these FMEA's has earned us very positive feedback.

Our most requested arrangement is the 1.5-day FMEA introduction course combined with our 1-day APQP and 0.5-day PPAP courses. These courses are geared (as much as reasonably possible) towards the specific needs and expectations of the participants. Small group discussions and customized (company-specific) exercises are used to help participants internalize, and immediately apply what has been taught.
