FMEA 101 Online Short Course – February 4

February 4 at 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM CST


Topic: FMEA 101 Online Short Course – February 4
Duration: 2 hours
CEUs: 0.2
Cost: $179*

Root cause analysis (RCA) is typically used for investigating why a problem did occur, so specific solutions can be implemented to prevent it from occurring again. Failure modes effect analysis (FMEA) is used to understand how a problem could happen in the future in an effort to identify what actions should be taken to prevent it. RCA is reactive, and FMEA is proactive. Connecting the two approaches can improve how your organization analyzes, documents, communicates and prevents problems.

In this online short course, you’ll learn:

  • The importance of cause-and-effect thinking for understanding and preventing incidents.
  • The 10 steps of conducting a conventional FMEA.
  • How a system breaks out into its parts.
  • How RCA and FMEA connect into a cumulative Cause Map™ diagram—a tool that captures the different failure modes over the life of a system.

After the course, attendees will receive:

  • Training Summary Document (PDF)
  • Cause Mapping Excel Template
  • Examples that were presented during the course
  • Certificate of Completion with 0.2 CEUs**
