Global Best Practices in Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (Design - FMEA and Process - FMEA) as per AIAG – VDA

Date : 23 - 24 & 29 - 30 September, 2021

Time : 1330 Hrs to 1745 Hrs


Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) identifies and reduces risks throughout the supply chain. Additional cost savings result from developing FMEA by means of FMEA data models, catalogs and basic FMEA. Design FMEA facilitates to consider entire life span of the product during design stage. It helps to reduce Engineering / Design time. Process FMEA is used to identify potential risks in processes, to evaluate their significance and to initiate suitable measures for their avoidance or detection in good time.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an online training on "Global Best Practices in Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (Design - FMEA and Process - FMEA) as per AIAG – VDA". This program presents the decisive success factors for the development of system FMEA focussing both on Design FMEA and Process FMEA. Participants will be able to successfully participate in FMEA analysis as “Subject Matter Experts” and prepare for future work as an FMEA facilitator.

Module - 1 (Design FMEA) : 23 - 24 September 2021, 13:30 - 17:45 Hrs
Module - 2 (Process FMEA) :
29 - 30 September 2021, 13:30 - 17:45 Hrs.

 *Note: Participants may register for individual modules as well. View detailed brochure - Design FMEA | Process FMEA

Focus Areas

  • Objectives of FMEA with focus on Design-FMEA and Process-FMEA
  • Definitions (risk, risk management ...)
  • The FMEA as a tool for quality and inspection planning
  • Stumbling blocks and their avoidance
  • FMEA and product liability
  • The seven steps of FMEA (AIAG/VDA manual, 1st edition 2019)
  • Special features of the MSR FMEA (detection measures and system reactions in the field)
  • Success factors in developing FMEA
  • Reduction of FMEA development costs
  • Harmonized evaluation catalogs (meaning, occurrence, detection)
  • Action Priority (AP) instead of risk priority number (RPN)
  • FMEA interfaces to other tools (including QFD, DVP&R, Control Plan)
  • Building the system structure for designs and processes
  • Building the functional structure for designs and processes
  • Weaving of functional networks
  • Building controls against failure modes for design and process throughout the structure
  • Weaving of failure nets
  • Evaluation of risks
  • Design and Process optimization by developing avoidance and detection strategies
  • Application areas of the FMEA
