Design FMEA Course | DFMEA Training


Design Failure Mode Effect Analysis or Design FMEA is a structured approach that ensures potential failure modes and their associated causes have been considered and addressed in the product design. Design fmea identifies design functions, failure modes and their effects on the customer with corresponding severity ranking/danger of the effect.

Design FMEA

Course Objective


  •  Firstly, To gather potential causes by which a product design can fail.
  •  Secondly, understand to make our design more robust.
  •  Define the Design FMEA scope.
  •  Conduct the ranking scales for Severity, Occurrence, and Detection.
  •  Make the Design FMEA into an active document.
  •  Develop correct parameters based on Design FMEA.

Who Should Attend


  • Manufacturing Managers
  • New Product Development Managers
  • Quality Engineers and Managers
  • Plant Engineers
  • Management Representative
  • Technical Staff
  • Quality Professionals
  • Suppliers Quality Assurance
  • Maintenance Manager

Benefits of Attending

The Design FMEA procedure is a highly effective way to evaluate the design of the products. It is as valuable for revealing areas needing improvement as it is for guiding the development of new designs.

Design FMEA training will help the participants to

  • Increases the probability that failure modes and their effects on the system/product have been considered.
  • Provides an open issue format for recommending and tracking risk-reduction actions.
  • It aids in analyzing field concerns, design changes, and developing advanced designs.
  • It helps to standardize ranks to the failure modes according to their effect on the customer, thus help in prioritizing improvements.
  • Help to Identifying failure modes of the product ranked according to their effect on the customer establishes a priority system for design improvement and development testing while still in the design phase.

One of the most critical benefits is that it specifies certain actions that will certainly help to prioritize the design failures of a product.

Training Deliverables











Feedback From Past Participants

This workshop has helped us in prioritizing the design failures.

Our product Design capability has improved significantly.

I think the tool is essential for improving product design.

It is useful for all manufacturing companies.

The exercises were beneficial for a clear understanding of how to design products.
