Program Overview:

“Risk Analysis and Failure Mode & Effect Analysis”

Presented by Richard Strube – CMSE – Universal Instruments

Risk Based Thinking has been introduced in the 2015 revision to the ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard. Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) has long been a tool used by the automobile industry to assess the severity and frequency of errors or problems that can occur and affect product or process quality, performance or reliability. By calculating the “risk number” or “n-number” (as it is frequently called) the potential impacts can be prioritized and actions taken to mitigate or prevent the specific issue from occurring. The FMEA can be a valuable tool to support Risk Analysis work. Since the n-number is quantified, the impact of corrective and/or preventive actions can also be readily seen. This presentation will provide valuable insight and practical experience in better understanding risk analysis.
