How to Get the Most Out of Your Process-Focused Risk Assessments

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is the most comprehensive risk management tool in that it covers each of the phases of identification, assessment, evaluation, and treatment of risks. It is required in the auto industry and highly utilized in aerospace and medical devices, all of which are high-risk industries. Unfortunately, it is often treated as a documentation exercise rather than used as a powerful analysis of processes that allows determination of whether and how to respond to identified risks. Informational inputs are critical for an effective and accurate assessment, as well as avoiding the confusion of causes, problems, and effects. In addition, the workload can be reduced by thinking about what level of the system is most appropriate for analysis

This 60 minutes webinar, which includes time for Q&A, will cover these factors and provide specific recommendations for when and how to conduct a pFMEA and how to use it on a regular basis.

Join this session with expert speaker Duke Okes, who will present the typical format for conducting a pFMEA and how it can be used throughout the process lifecycle for reducing process failures. Duke will also present other options on how to apply the concepts of FMEA for those organizations that are not mandated to use the traditional format.

  • Connections between risk management and pFMEA

  • Proper interpretation of the cause-failure-effect relationship
