FAILURE MODES, EFFECTS & CRITICALITY ANALYSIS (FMECA)
FMECA is the start of the formal RCM procedure. Preparatory work will have been carried before this stage in the form of SI selection but FMECA will now start to add much more detail to the overall process.
The purpose of the FMECA procedure is to document all probable failures of a particular SI, document the causes of failures, determine what happens when these failures occur and hence assess the severity or criticality of each Failure Mode. Results of a FMECA can be used to provide the rationale for changes in operating procedures, maintenance strategies or design to remove undesirable Failure Modes.
FAILURE MODES AND EFFECTS ANALYSIS (FMEA)
The FMEA is an analysis procedure by which each potential Failure Mode (Root Cause of Failure) in a system is analysed to determine the results or Effects on the system. FMEA introduces a structured method of data recording and allows the Analyst to interpret this information once collected. FMEA is a useful analytical tool that can be used to identify Root Causes of Failure.
This course, presented by our Aladon registered RCM 2 practitioner and trainer, Chris James, is designed to provide the delegate with a thorough overview of the FMEA and FMECA processes coupled with a sound knowledge of the underlying principles. The fundamental principles are established and then built upon using a combination of advanced presentation techniques, informal delegate instructor interaction and formal scripted syndicate and individual exercises.
The delegate will:
Understand the procedure required to complete a Failure Modes & Effects Analysis (FMEA).
Be able to establish the elements of a FMEA.
Build on the principles of the failure process to fully understand the procedure required to complete a Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA).
Be able to understand the difference between Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Criticality Analysis (CA) and the benefits of each individually.
The delegate will benefit professionally from the knowledge which has been given and the sponsoring organisation gains personnel who understand FMEA and FMECA and are confident about its use in the workplace.
The individual is better equipped for their role and they will have undergone a degree of personal development through the expansion of their knowledge base.
This course is currently aimed at the Manufacturing / Production Engineering sector but can be tailored to other engineering environments on request.
This course is suitable for both those with a 'hands on' role and for management grades who require a basic understanding of the potential, the processes and of the problems associated with FMEA and FMECA. The course will act as an introduction to FMEA and FMECA and forms a sound foundation upon which future development can be based.
Aspire has strong theoretical knowledge gained over many years study of RCM related topics. This is coupled with a great deal of practical experience which has been gained at all levels ranging from RCM Facilitator and Analyst through to RCM team leader and RCM programme management. This experience extends to the application of RCM to complex systems.
Additionally the Course Presenter has relevant first hand experience and therefore a deep understanding of the problems faced by the customer. The Presenters of this course will always be experienced practitioners able to pass on their experience and current knowledge.
Discounts of 5% for the second delegate and 10% for the third and subsequent delegates from the same organisation are available.
The ‘Early Bird’ rate is £450+VAT, and is available until 1st February 2016
The cost for current and ex-serving members of both UK and international Defence Forces and Civil Service personnel is £425+VAT.
