About FMEA Training


Who is FMEA Training for?

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis training is for anybody interested in launching a new undertaking more successfully. New undertakings can be services, products, or processes. And more successfully means with less risk, injury to customers or employees, warranty cost, rework cost, and scrap cost. In our course, Austin students learn:

FMEA Training Course Overview:

FMEA training describes Failure Mode and Effects Analysis so Austin students can lessen risk while designing any new system, product, or process. FMEA as a Design Tool. Failure Mode and Effects Analysis was born in Aerospace and evolved in Automotive; industries where we can't afford to make mistakes because they're safety-critical and measured in the cost of lives lost. What's useful for designing a zero-failure Space Shuttle is probably useful everywhere. Many industrial leaders agree so FMEA has found applications not only in product design but system design and process design as well. For example, Manufacturing Engineers in Automotive Powertrain divisions may have $50M budgets to launch new machining lines. That's a lot of money; as much as many smaller companies earn in a year. Mistakes can't be made. The expectation is that these new, super-complex lines launch flawlessly. How can that be done? FMEA.

FMEA as a Root Cause Analysis Tool. In Six Sigma's DMAIC Analyze Phase, suppose you're working on a really tough problem with a low defect rate or a one-off that was destroyed in the process of its failure. How can you find the root cause? Many folks give up at this point claiming, "we can't do anything about a one-off failure". Not true. If that were true, FAA investigators wouldn't have jobs. If actual failure modes no longer exist, we can look at potential causes. FMEA allow us to do that.

Silicon Hills - Keep Austin Weird

Excellent choice! Austin was recommended to serve as the capital due to the area's pleasant hills, waterways, and convenience as a crossroads between Galveston, Santa Fe, Mexico, and the Red River. A capital building and granite dam were built to power a street car line. Parks were established. The Texas Oil Boom happened. High-tech semiconductor manufacturing and higher education evolved. Music become prominent. And, Austin has flourished becoming America's 11th, and Texas' 4th largest city by population, and one of America's fastest-growing large cities. As such, many fun after-class options exist including the 6th Street bar scene, music festivals, ballet, museums, the LBJ Presidential Library, shopping, a massive bat colony, and Lake Travis.

Our SMED instructor did a great job engaging the class with great work examples. From this class, other students agreed that the examples and pace were good, it was a nice overview of SMED / Lean process leading to great discussion, and that the knowledgeable instructor did a great job teaching and keeping it fun.

I had the pleasure of working with our Master Black Belt in a high-tech manufacturing company where formal continuous improvement was a new concept. I was impressed with his ability to translate the concepts and skills needed to start down the path of the discipline in a way that was not only accessible to the employees, but excited them and moved many of them into being active, positive participants. I saw an immediate improvement in overall engagement, which helped in areas well beyond the tactical and functional areas included in the improvement project, itself.
