An Introduction to Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA)

Course Overview

Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEAs) are often regarded as a Manufacturing and Operations assessment technique, however, this training will build on this with not only production but office-based Process assessments.

This course will develop and build the PFMEA 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 PFMEAs within their Company.

What is Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA)?

A Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA) is a structured analytical tool used by an organization, business unit, or cross-functional team to identify and evaluate the potential failures of a process.
