Failure Modes and Effects Analysis - Process

Format Virtual

Gain a working knowledge of the FMEA tool as it is applied to the manufacturing or service processes of an organization. This course demonstrates the basics of creating a Process FMEA – a critical step in assessing the risk to the business as well as the manufacturing process of the product or service.

Address the potential failures within the process flow of the manufacturing or service system in this one-day, hands-on course. Conducted early in the process development cycle, the FMEA tool is used to identify risks and then adjust the manufacturing or service process to reduce the identified risks and improve quality.Use data from your own organization with the FMEA tool in the three- to four-hour afternoon workshop that follows the morning discussion of the Process FMEA’s key components and how to successfully complete the FMEA form. You’ll receive a Process FMEA Project Checklist for workshop ideas with registration materials.

ASQ virtual courses provide electronic access to course materials for 30 days beginning five days before the first day of your course.  Extensions and/or refunds cannot be issued if course materials have been accessed.  Chrome and Edge browsers are recommended – Internet Explorer is not supported.

WebEx – Virtual Course: Advance Preparation and Student Information

Join a Test Session

We strongly suggest that you join a WebEx test session in advance of your scheduled virtual training, using your preferred web browser. This can help prevent problems launching content the day your training begins.

If you do not have administrative privileges on the SAME computer you will be using the day of your training (i.e., your workstation within your organization) you may need the assistance of your local IT/IS help desk staff for the platform to engage correctly.

To join a test session (meeting), click here and enter your name and email address to join. If successful, you will see a screen that says "Congratulations! Your system is now set up properly ..."

Deactivate Pop-up Blockers

You should deactivate any pop-up blockers, spam filters, and company firewalls that could prevent the WebEx client platform or web-based course from working properly. Third-party toolbars such as Bing, Yahoo, and Google should also be disabled due to their own pop-up blocking capabilities.
