Course Overview

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a tool that examines potential product or process failures, evaluates risk priorities, and helps determine remedial actions to avoid identified problems. An FMEA is a form of Brainstorming that generally follows a Cause and Effect Analysis or a Process mapping and it is usually followed by a Pareto Analysis. It is a granular analysis of a process, a system or a product design for the purpose of identifying possible deficiencies. It is generally conducted by a cross functional group with all the participants having a stake or knowledge about the process, system or product being assessed.
