Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA)

About Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA)

What is FMEA?

The Failure Modes, Effect and Analysis (FMEA) aims at identifying the asset function, failure modes, cause, detection and their consequences as well as recommendation to mitigate the risk of such failures.

What can you expect?

  • Identify potential failure modes for a product or process in the development phase (DFMEA) to improve product or guarantee product quality as well as during the operational phase (PFMEA) to analyse critical equipment.
  • Provide risk or critical assessment associated with those failure modes, regarding frequency of occurrence, severity and detection and prioritise issues for preventive action.
  • Support the RCM analysis as a baseline to define the best maintenance policies for each equipment and components.
  • Drive Quantitative Accelerated test in order focus on main failure causes (product weakness) to improve the product and reliability prediction.
  • Integrates with Reliability Growth management policies (identify failure modes discovered during testing, update probabilities of occurrence based on Reliability Growth testing data).
  • Drive HALT test in order focus on main failure causes (Robustness).
  • Analyses equipment failure effect on other equipment as well as in the whole process (SFMEA).

THE FMEA training can be customised to the client demand and be performed together with other training concerning a client cases study assessment

Two-day training is proposed to cover the FMEA topics such as:

  • FMEA concept.
  • Risk matrix and RPN concepts.
  • FMEA applied in different asset life cycle, such as design, manufacturing, commissioning and operation.
  • FMEA case studies applied to different equipment such as braking, bogies etc
  • Case studies applied to diverse industries such as Oil and gas, transportation and aerospace and defence industries
