“Everything that can fail, shall fail”
This is known as Murphy’s Law and is one of the main reasons behind the FMEA technique.

Why use FMEA?

  • Potential failures can be identified before producing/performing the Product/Service.
  • The cost of preventive vs. reactive problem solving is much lower.
  • To eliminate issues or risks before they reach the consumer.
  • Issues are highlighted early in the project where alternative solutions and improvements are easier and less costly to implement.

The Benefits of FMEA

  • Better Quality
  • Increased Safety
  • Enhanced Customer Satisfaction
  • Higher Reliability
  • Contributes to Cost Savings
  • Decreases Waste
  • Decreases Development Time

Who Should Attend

  • People involved in the design or specification of products or processes
  • Managers who want to understand the benefits of FMEA before company implementation
  • Design engineers responsible for new product design and introduction
  • Engineers who will be involved in generating manufacturing Control Plans
