Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a key step and common starting point for asset reliability improvement. When combined with Weibull analysis and other tools such as RCM, FMEA's lead to optimized strategies for reducing or eliminating the effects of failure such as: safety risks, environmental risks, negative business effects, lost production and consequential damage. This seminar will give participants detailed training on conducting an FMEA as well as an overview of how to transform the FMEA into a strategic plan. Topics discussed with include:
  • Introduction to Reliability Engineering Principles
  • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • Failure Prediction Using Weibull Analysis
  • Failure Mode and Effects Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
  • FMEA's as an Integral part of RCM decision making
  • “State-of-the-Art” Reliability Modeling and Decision Tools
Who should attend?
The seminar is ideal for Engineers who are responsible for decisions regarding asset design or maintenance, particularly:
  • Maintenance Managers and Engineers
  • Reliability Engineers
  • Process and Equipment Design Engineers
  • Safety Engineers
