Design FMEA
2-Day Workshop

Design FMEA is a structured approach

that ensures potential failure modes and
their associated causes have been
considered and addressed in the product
design. It identifies design functions,
failure modes and their effects on the
customer with corresponding severity
ranking / danger of the effect.
