Failure Mode and Effects Anaysis - Managing Risk

Format E-Learning

This course will guide you in the effective use of failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA). Learn the steps and actions needed to conduct an FMEA for processes within your organization. Valuable techniques are introduced as you move through the FMEA. You will also review a practical, real-life scenario that leverages FMEA to prioritize changes geared toward improving a process. Knowledge-check activities throughout the course will let you apply what you’ve learned.

This easy-to-follow course, with engaging narration and animation, guides you step by step through failure mode and effects analysis, or FMEA, which is a technique used to determine the types of failures that may occur and prioritizes each failure effect based on the risk, severity of impact, and frequency of occurrence. Learn about the specific steps and actions comprising failure mode and effects analysis, as well as the steps to take once an FMEA has been performed. Review a practical, real-life scenario that leverages FMEA to prioritize changes geared toward improving the process in question. Interactive knowledge checks in this course let you apply what you’ve learned.
