This one day Failure Mode Effects Criticality Analysis (FMECA) training
course introduces the topics of design and process FMECA to your team by
teaching the theory using practical examples from your own business.
Delegates are provided with basic fundamentals and are led through the
techniques for producing a FMECA. FMECA is an important technique in the field of reliability assessment; it can provide valuable information to feed into both design as well maintenance strategies. It provides a
comprehensive identification and evaluation of the unwanted failure
modes of components or sub-systems within a system, and the effects
these failures have on the system. Criticality analysis enables the
seriousness of these failures to be assessed.
The need for asset integrity is a key driver for any industry. Improving
maintenance and reliability ensures the optimum performance of assets
against a backdrop of regulatory, safety and cost pressures. Maintenance
needs to improve the integrity and availability of assets while minimising
FMECA is a methodology for predicting potential failures and the
consequences of those failures. The output of the analysis is used to direct
effort appropriately into preventing failures, with the overall aim of
reducing the risk of failure to an acceptable level.
Criticality analysis is a key technique for understanding which items of
equipment, or systems, are most important to operations. Knowing which
items are most critical allows engineers to prioritise maintenance effort
into the most beneficial and necessary areas for the business. When
applied effectively criticality analysis and FMECA both result in optimising
equipment maintenance policies that save money and increase reliability.
