Understanding and implementing of risk assessment through FMEA

Date : 25 to 26 July, 2019

@ BIEC, 10th Mile, Tumkur Road, Madavara Post, Bangalore


In today's competitive market environment, the industry has realized the fact that servicing unreliable products is a very costly proposition. To a large extent, reliability is built into the product during the design and development phase. Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an essential ingredient of reliability engineering and is a very powerful and effective technique used for improvement in design, assembly, materials engineering, servicing etc., in a diverse range of manufacturing activities. FMEA can be effectively applied in case of new developments, new technologies and components/assemblies or products which have inherent problems showing up in practice.

'Failure Mode & Effects Analysis' (FMEA) is an “ error prevention” oriented and proactive methodology that tries to pre-empt the occurrence of errors; reduce their significance (even if they were bound to occur) and in unavoidable circumstances, to increase the chance of error detection, so that the process could then be suitably controlled. FMEA is an aid for continuous improvement which fits into a PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) pattern of activity. Whenever changes in product or processes or vendor / supplier are envisaged or effected, FMEA is redone to evaluate their effects.

Keeping this is view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day programme on Understanding and Implementation of Risk Assessment through FMEA on 25 - 26 July 2019 at Bangalore.

Focus Areas

  • Introduction to FMEA Concepts
  • Reliability
  • Failure analysis vs FMEA
  • Cause & Effects Analysis
  • FMEA Methodology
  • Design FMEA – Examples & Case Studies
  • Process FMEA – Examples & Case Studies.
  • Group Exercises ( Participants will be divided into groups and each group will prepare and study an example of FMEA)
  • Developments & Benefits of FMEA
  • Using FMEA for Risk assessment
  • Machinery FMEA

Key Take Aways

After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to -

  • Concept of FMEA as a risk management and preventive quality assurance technique
  • How to carry out Design FMEA and Process FMEA in industries
  • Practical implementation of FMEA through Group Excercises & hints
  • Concepts of Machinery FMEA

Training Methodology

There will be a combination of lecture sessions with case study presentations and specific simulation examples. The participants will get an intensive exposure on FMEA with active involvement in problem solving, through group exercises. The workshop will be highly interactive where participants can raise questions and solicit feedback from the faculty.
