Understanding and Implementing Design and Process FMEA - 4th Edition

Establish the foundation to void Murphy's Law; things that could go wrong don't have to when you learn to use the 4th Edition Design and Process FMEAs successfully.

This two-day workshop will teach you the skills to understand and use FMEAs and the concept of risk reduction and defect prevention. Turn your quality control around when you discover the impact of failure and how you can reduce the risk with FMEAs. Then, take your skills and knowledge beyond the concepts by learning the specifics of successfully developing and maintaining design and process FMEAs for your company, which includes identifying and reducing risk factors.
