Process FMEA

Process FMEA is a structured approach that ensures potential process failure modes and their associated causes have been considered and addressed in the design of the process.

Process FMEA

Course Objective

Identify the critical process parameters.

Learn to make our process more robust.

Develop practices of conducting the boundary diagram, Interface Matrix, and the Parameter  Diagram before going for process design.

Explain the whole procedure of PFMEA, step by step

Use PFMEA in daily improvements

Identify where to use  PFMEA to solve problems

Who Should Attend

Manufacturing Managers

Product Engineers and Managers

Quality Engineers and Managers

Maintenance Manager

New Product Development Managers

Technical Staff

Quality Professionals

Suppliers Quality Assurance

Production Manager

Benefits of Attending

The Process FMEA is being conducted after the Design FMEA process and the Process FMEA procedure is a highly effective way to evaluate the process of any operation. It is as valuable for revealing areas needing improvement as it is for guiding the development of new processes and also the concerned processes.

  • Help Identifying potential failure modes ranked according to their effect on the customer; establishes a priority system for process improvement and development testing while still in the planning phase.
  • Provides critical input for the planning of effective process test and development programs
  • Provides critical input for the process control plan
  • Initiates Rational prioritization of potential failures for corrective/preventive action and/or redesign.
  • It also gives a clear understanding of the concerned process, so as to generate strong ideas on developing a failure-free process.
  • Ultimately attracts customer satisfaction on the critical process.
