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, Reno students learn:

FMEA Training Course Overview:

FMEA training describes Failure Mode and Effects Analysis so Reno 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.


Biggest Little City

Excellent choice! Reno's recent growth is from attracting large manufacturing, logistics, and data companies. Examples include Tesla's Gigafactory 1, Apple, Amazon, Google, Switch, Blockchains,, eBay, and Wal-Mart. While corporate expansion makes Reno a good city for work-related FMEA Training, it is also rich with recreational options. Mt. Rose is a popular snow skiing resort. Pyramid Lake is known for fishing; in-fact, its home to the world's largest Lahontan cutthroat trout. Rock hounders scour local hills in search of quartz and amethyst.

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.
