A failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) training is scheduled for September 12, 2017 in Meadville. FMEA helps uncover potential failures before they occur while investigating at-risk processes, components, or whole products. An upcoming training class offered by Northwest Industrial Resource Center (NWIRC) will teach you how to construct and analyze both product and process FMEAs. A list of objectives include:
- Defining the types of FMEAs
- Identifying the benefits of FMEAs
- Understanding the components of a FMEA
- Describing process requirements
- Explaining the impact of team selection on the FMEA
- Managing the FMEA over the life of the process
