Online 2 days Training prog "Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis" (PFMEA)

Program Title        2 days Training session on Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (PFMEA)

Brief About the Program

Failures of any kind are not tolerated in today’s global economy. Prevention is always better than cure! One must strive for the elimination or extreme reduction of any type of failure in products, processes or services.

A Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA) is a structured analytical tool used by an organization, business unit or cross-functional team to identify and evaluate the potential failures of a process. PFMEA helps to establish the impact of the failure and identify and prioritize the action items with the goal of alleviating risk. It is a living document that should be initiated prior to process of production and maintained through the lifecycle of the product.

This is One of the most powerful techniques to avoid process problems or to prevent defects in products and services
