Course Overview

Course ID: MC-QA-FMEA-0317

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a structured methodology to assess risk of failures and to determine remedial controls in a design, manufacture, maintenance, product or service. FMEA is one of the most extensively used risk assessment tools for industries.

The course module has been developed to provide comprehensive knowledge to learners on the use of FMEA technique effectively. Virtual classes tutored by experienced faculties will support learners to acquire proficiency on the methodology of developing FMEA for a product, service or process. Group activities, interactions with other learners in the classroom shall further reinforce the knowledge and skill of participants.
