An Introduction to Design Failure Mode Effects Analysis

DFMEAs were developed by NASA during the Apollo program to ensure that risks within all Engineering aspects were assessed and mitigated

Course Overview

This course will develop and build the DFMEA competency and confidence of Engineers with little or no prior experience.

The target is to ensure that all attendees can hold and or successful partake in DFMEAs within their Company.

What is Design Failure Mode Effects Analysis?

Identification and Evaluation

Design failure mode and effect analysis (DFMEA) is a systematic group of activities used to recognize and evaluate potential systems, products or process failures. DFMEA identifies the effects and outcomes of these failures or actions.

Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is the process of reviewing as many components, assemblies, and subsystems as possible to identify potential failure modes in a system and their causes and effects.

Course Structure

The course will take place over four 1-hour Webinar sessions, in addition Tunley Engineering will support the attendees post training where needed and or appropriate via email or conference call. An overview of the sessions is as follows:
