Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Training

Risk Management – instead of Crisis Management


Due to the growing globalization during the last decade, products, services, design and production processes are confronted with increasing pressure. Intense competition, more as well as stricter norms and regulations, new consumer habits and needs, the increasing diversification of needs plus enormous price erosion are a few of the challenges companies are facing these days.

GPG supports clients throughout the development process. Our comprehensive services help them to analyze, identify and avoid risks:

  • FMEA moderation services
  • Projects for the optimization of FMEA processes
  • FMEA software implementation
  • Training
  • Coaching
  • Tracking of implemented measures
  • DRBFM projects

Our FMEA experts are available for your questions, requests, service offers, project planning and FMEA moderation.

Project Examples

  •     Design FMEA powertrain automotive
  •     FMEA process and software implementation of batch production
  •     Process FMEA “Axle welding”
  •     Systems analysis linear accelerator (basic research)
  •     Design FMEA of a hybrid module
  •     HACCP analysis of dairy product production
  •     Systems analysis of a wind generator gear drive
  •     Process FMEA of implant production
  •     Design FMEA of a lid system for beverage packages


FMEA is a tool for assessing possible mistakes during the development and planning phase in order to prevent their occurrence in products and processes.

System FMEA (S-FMEA) analyzes planned solution concepts based on:

  • System concepts
  • Function descriptions
  • Product requirements documents

Design FMEA (D-FMEA )analyzes planned development solutions based on:

  • System concepts
  • Function analysis
  • Product requirements documents
  • Functional specifications
  • Design drawings
  • Circuit diagrams
  • Norms
  • Guidelines

Process FMEA (P-FMEA) analyzes planned production and assembly processes based on:

  • Design drawings
  • Assembly concepts
  • Production plans
  • Test plans

Training Agenda

  • Basic introduction to FMEA
  • Purpose and Benefits
  • Types of FMEA, (Design, Process etc.)
  • FMEA Inputs
  • Team membership and running an FMEA Session
  • Failure Mode, Cause and Effects identification
  • Rating Scales
  • Calculation of Risk Priority Number (RPN)
  • Evaluating the risk using the RPN and prioritising areas for improvement
  • Implementing corrective actions in product and process design
  • Defining special characteristics and developing a control plan
  • Common Mistakes


Who Should Attend

  • Executives, development managers, production managers and employees in the fields
  • Project manager involved in the product development process
  • People involved in the design or specification of products or processes
  • Managers who want to understand the benefits of FMEA before company implementation
  • Design engineers responsible for new product design and introduction
  • Engineers who will be involved in generating manufacturing Control Plans
  • For this seminar, FMEA fundamentals are beneficial for a better understanding, but not mandatory.

Before the seminar, there is the possibility to request free information material from us in order to obtain a short method overview in the self-study.
