We all want to support the accomplishment of safe and trouble-free products and processes. Failure Mode and Effects Analysis has the potential to be a powerful reliability tool to reduce product design and manufacturing risk in a cost effective manner. With shorter product development times, tighter budgets and intense global competition, Design for Reliability tools such as FMEA must be applied correctly. Yet in practice, FMEA does not always achieve the expected results. Why is it that some companies have outstanding success in their FMEA application and others do not? What is the difference between well done and poorly done FMEAs? What are the essential elements of an effective FMEA process? These questions and more are answered in these three new short courses on FMEA.
