The Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis is a reliability evaluation/design technique which examines the potential failure modes within a system and its equipment, in order to determine the effects on equipment and system performance.
Understand and perform the principals of FMECA.
Understand criticality analysis techniques and their use in prioritizing equipment and reliability improvement work.
Play an active role in equipment criticality analysis.
Select proper criteria to apply FMECA
Identify all the potential significant and crucial failure modes on early stages.
Who Should Attend

Benefits of Attending
FMECA is a wonderful tool which helps in examining the potential failure modes within a system and its equipment.
Thus it facilitates identification of potential design reliability problem areas which must be eliminated or their effect minimized, by design modification or tradeoffs.
Information and knowledge gained by performing the FMECA can also be used as a basis for troubleshooting activities, maintenance manual development, and design of effective built-in test techniques.
The FMECA provides valuable information for maintainability, safety, and logistics analysis.
It also provides an open issue format for recommending and tracking risk-reducing action.
Also increases the probability that potential failure modes and their effects have been considered in the design/development process and it establishes a priority system for design improvement.
