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 the methodology used for design, assembly, materials engineering, servicing etc., for a diverse range of products and processes. FMEA can be effectively applied in case of new developments, new technologies and components/assemblies or products which have inherent problems to anticipate & prevent problems showing up in practice during the product lifecycle by an approach using methodical thinking and validation of concepts.
'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 continuous Improvement and problem solving is envisaged or effected, FMEA is redone to evaluate their effects. FMEA is important requirement as per ISO/TS 16949 for Auto OEMs as well suppliers.
Keeping this is view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day interactive programme on Understanding & Implementation of Risk Assessment through FMEA on 19 - 20 September 2019 at Pune.
After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to -
1. Concept of FMEA as a risk management and preventive quality assurance technique
2. How to carry out Design FMEA and Process FMEA in industries
3. Practical implementation of FMEA through Group Excercises & hints
4. Concepts of Machinery FMEA
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 its methodology, through group exercises. The programme will be highly interactive where participants can raise questions and solicit feedback from the faculty.
