About the course HI-PP7 Failure Mode & Effects Analysis Facilitator.

The Failure Mode & Effects Analysis, FMEA, is considered to be the heart of risk management of any development process. Providing a clear link between Design for Six Sigma and Design for Reliability and therefore ensures state-of-the-art products. 

In the course Failure Mode & Effects Analysis Facilitator, the reference book “Effective FMEA’s” from Carl Carlson is complemented with the structural way of working of Holland Innovative, gained by years of experience. The goal is to reduce waste of time and effort. This makes FMEA more fun to do and gets focus on all the high risks. You will learn how to facilitate these effective FMEA’s including the transformation into a risk mitigation plan. The FMEA will be turned into a “living document” and a risk tracking tool.

With this course you’ll learn:

  • A structured preparation to decrease the effort and time for the actual FMEA process.
  • The CTQ flowdown and system decomposition with boundary and interface diagram to give insight into the product at hand. The results are input for the first prioritization step with the preliminary risk assessment

During the course Failure Mode & Effects Analysis Facilitator you will learn how to facilitate and execute risk analysis. With the help of the analysis tool FMEA you will be able to map out various potential risks. In less time you will identify the high risks and develop a risk mitigation plan. Failure Mode & Effects Analysis will constitute as an effective part of your Product Creation Process. Besides, during the course, you will get enthusiastic involvement of engineers, architects, managers to increase the effectiveness of Failure Mode & Effects Analysis.

PP courses - outcome

New products, processes and systems need to be developed faster and with increasing quality and reliability levels.Therefore, production losses, warranty claims and brand image loss need to be prevented.
