Course Description

With this course, you will be able to perform, at any level of detail and complexity, a complete Failure Mode and Effect Analysis, Criticality Analysis and Matrix, mastering indexes like Risk, Risk Priority Number, Failure Mode Failure Rate, etc.

Risk Management is an extremely fascinating field, since it helps in foresee and manage hazards and probabilities thereof.

Nowadays, this disciplines is widely used in many fields, and sometimes also required by the legislation. The most common use of risk management are:

- risk evaluation in product design, e.g. during medical devices and machinery design

- financial risk evaluation

- safety on workplace risk assessment 

- design and processes in automotive and aerospace 

- risk evaluation during potentially hazardous processes, like food production, and so on

- risk evaluation in project management

- process control techniques, e.g. six sigma 

We may resort to many different techniques for risk evaluation, however, the most widely used and accepted, is FMEA/FMECA, i.e. Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis.

This methodology follows a bottom-up approach, and starting from the failure of a component (or a phase if we are talking about a process), estimates the final effect and evaluates it consequences. Even if it seems easy to understand at a first sight because of its intuitive concept, actually, performing it thoroughly is not an easy matter, especially if you consider that, the FMEA/FMECA documentation often has a legal value, since you may be asked by the court in case of accidents to show it, in order to prove your design or process was performed with the user safety in mind.

+++++ Have a look at the course curriculum and at the intro lesson +++++

In this course we will study both FMEA and the Criticality Analysis, starting from the basic qualitative analysis to the more complex quantitative criticality analysis (and its representation with the criticality matrix) using modal failure rates, and effect conditional probability.

There are many version of FMEA/FMECA, and in order to provide the most useful and valuable learning experience to you, we will use as a reference the International Standards IEC 60812, "Analysis techniques for reliability - Procedure for failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA)" .

However, this standard cover very effectively only FMEA and the qualitative and semi-quantitative  FMECA, not providing much details on quantitative criticality analysis. Therefore, for the latter methodology, I will refer to the methodology borrowed from the US military Standard MIL-STD-1629, which provide a very accurate numerical methodology for the criticality calculation.

Which are also the approaches I use in my professional activity.

In the course, we will also talk about of Process FMEA, PFMEA, with a simplified  example on a cooking process, and of Design FMEA, DFMEA. We will provide various example, on electric toys, cooking process and various components. However you will get the most from the course if you work in the design field, in particular product design or electronic design, and you will find many examples in it.

As we said, FMEA/FMECA are very versatile tools, therefore, once learned its concepts, it will be easy to transfer it to other fields, therefore even if you are not exactly in the product development or electronics field, you will earn valuable information and concepts from this course.

At the end of the course, you will be able to perform, at any level of detail and complexity, a complete Failure Mode and Effect Analysis, and a  Criticality Analysis.
