FMEA is a step by step proactive approach to identify all potential failures in design, process, system and machinery that can have impact on product or service. It is a systematic, qualitative tool to identify what can go wrong with a product or process. It helps to identify causes of failure and suitable control mechanism. This tool breaks down potential risk to manageable and quantifiable elements.
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, showing up in practice during the product lifecycle by an approach using methodical thinking and validation of concepts.
In this module you will be experiencing FMEA principles, methodology etc. with real time case studies.
