Our experienced instructor, will discuss the various topics and provide guidance on how to conduct a DFMEA. By attending this one-day course you will be capable of:

  • Explaining the relationship between DFMEA, APQP and PFMEA
  • Defining DFMEA customers
  • Creating boundary diagrams
  • Explaining functions and related potential failure modes
  • Identifying root causes and potential failure effects
  • Establishing prevention and detection controls
  • Analyze severity, occurrence and detection ranking
  • Taking corrective actions for critical items
  • Establishing signs of a successful FMEA

Each participant will receive a training manual.
