About the Course

This FMEA training non-manufacturing course is designed specifically for people doing FMEAs in non-manufacturing environments such as an office setting, hospital, bank or other transactional business.  Learners will be able to participate on process FMEA teams after successfully completing this training.  Examples and terminology are focused on service transactions.  Follows FMEA guidelines provided in AIAG’s FMEA 4th Edition.

This Training Enables Learners To…

  • Explain the purpose of conducting an FMEA and explain the benefits of using FMEAs in an office/transactional setting.
  • Describe the link between FMEAs and quality standards.
  • Explain the methodology of the FMEA process.
  • Assemble an FMEA team.
  • Clarify the scope of an FMEA.
  • Work through the 10 steps of an FMEA in a service environment.
  • Develop custom ranking scales for Severity, Occurrence, and Detection.
    Determine which technology tools to use as aids in your FMEA action plan.
  • Link FMEAs to a Control Plans.
  • Turn an FMEA into a living document.
