What you will learn

What is FMEA?

The benefits of implementing FMEA in your Organization.

The different types of FMEA.

The Five Steps of FMEA.

How to Plan your FMEA Project.

How to conduct a Process Analysis for an FMEA.

Process Flow Analysis.

How to fill the FMEA Worksheet in a step-wise and structured way.

Risk Priority Number (RPN).

This course is intended for professionals who, when designing new processes or analysing existing ones for better performance and efficiency, want a framework and set of tools and methods that:

  • Identify areas of the process that may be at risk for failures
  • Determine the degree of threat that these failures could lead to, internally or externally
  • Address these potential failures to mitigate them and eliminate their potential effects

This very well thought through, step wise and comprehensive FMEA course will help you design a manageable, predictable and reliable process.

This course is definitely amongst the best resources available on the net to not only build a strong , real world and functional understanding of FMEA but also enables to put this knowledge right away into practice with realistic and very detailed examples.

You will learn also some of quality and lean tools for process and failure analysis like Ishikawa, PDCA and Process Flow Analysis.

This course will provide you with an overview of the concepts and you will be given multiple examples to see how to apply these concepts. Also, it is a highly recommended resource for those wishing to eventually gain certification like Six Sigma Green or Black Belt and it will support your career whether you want to:

  • be an FMEA subject matter expert in your organization
  • facilitate Process Improvement & Kaizen Workshops
  • be a Quality or Risk Manager
  • be a Consultant supporting clients to identify threats they are facing in their processes and address them

Why is the course different?

When I did start my career almost a decade ago and had to run an FMEA for a service process, with little to no knowledge on the methodology , I was quiet frustrated on how rare to find a structured resources or courses on FMEA that could help me understand how to apply the it a systematic, methodical and step wise approach. There were a lot of web sites, courses and Excel Sheets but none that explains the concepts behind and with real-life guiding examples, so that I could start right away with a practice.

Today I am putting my experience of the last decade and my expertise in FMEA, in a top-quality, comprehensive yet concise, well-designed and easy to grasp course to help you avoid this frustration that I have lived when I was first confronted with FMEA.

It doesn’t give a blind guide to fill an Excel Sheet but helps you understand the concepts behind and how the different elements of the FMEA Form Sheet fit together.

What is the content of this course?

This 1 hour course is well structured into 6 modules: an Introduction and 5 modules each addresses a step of the FMEA Methodology.

Every module will include readings, discussions and lecture videos to help make sure you understand the material and concepts that are studied.

After each module, you will be able to apply the gained knowledge straight away in your work, not only to create an FMEA but in other domains too.

For each module you will have examples and downloadable templates you could use to apply it on your process.

Tipp’s and Tricks on how to create a most efficient and robust FMEA.

For whom is this course suitable?

This course is suitable for students from all levels whether you are:

  • A new comer in the FMEA World.
  • You want to broaden your knowledge on FMEA.
  • You have FMEA experience but you want to challenge your knowledge and look on the method from the five step approach angle
