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, Houston students learn:

FMEA Training Course Overview:

FMEA training describes Failure Mode and Effects Analysis so Houston 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.

Houston

Bayou City - Energy Capital of the World

Excellent choice! Houston began with discovery of oil at the Spindletop oil field near Beaumont. Oil combined with Galveston's hurricane devastation encouraged investment in the Houston ship channel and deep water Port of Houston. WWWII spurred ship building. Development of air conditioning made Houston's low cost of living more attractive to northern companies who began relocating there. Aerospace emerged. And Houston has flourished becoming the 4th largest city in the US by population. As such, Houston will keep you busy after FMEA Training with popular museums, the zoo, huge stadiums, malls, possibly the world's largest rodeo, gardens, and a stunning aquarium.

I was familiar with 5S prior to this training, but the course really gave an in-depth understanding of the principles and purpose. It's a lot more than just organizing and cleaning your work area. MBBC Note: Other students from this class described it as "very insightful and educational" delivered by in instructor who was "very knowledgeable about Lean".

I had the privilege of working with our Master Black Belt when he spearheaded the Six Sigma transformation within our company. The "do-as-I-do" disciplined style of his direction resonated within our entire organization. This was during a period of escalated growth and the management struggles that often accompany. Through his steady and focused approach, he brought structure to the craziness, garnered buy-in at all levels, and was quickly recognized as the guru. This was several years ago and now as a leader in an unrelated industry, I still find myself looking back on many of the concepts and methods we discussed. You may remember that one great teacher you had when you were in school, or a mentor you still think about today? He is one of those kind of special people who one is fortunate to know.
