FMEA basic knowledge – Webinar

The FMEA online training / FMEA Webinar offers an overview of the areas of application and the development of the FMEA method. Basic working methods as well as the distinction between system, construction and process FMEA are discussed. Important core elements of the seminar are the VDA-compliant application of the 7 steps of the FMEA. This seminar is aimed at those interested and managers who need an overview and basic understanding of the FMEA method, as well as at employees who are looking for a first step into risk management. No previous knowledge is required to participate in the FMEA online seminar, but QM basics are beneficial for a better understanding. Participants and speakers simply meet in a seminar room on the Internet. You always have the opportunity to ask questions. The FMEA online seminar is an efficient and inexpensive alternative. There are no travel costs or travel times to the seminar location as well as any overnight stays. The technical possibilities must be clarified in advance with your own IT department.

FMEA basic knowledge webinar

You will get to know and apply the failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA method) efficiently and in a targeted manner. You will expand your methodological knowledge and can apply it independently in your environment within the framework of product and / or process development. You will be able to support and optimize your development area and your processes in terms of quality, efficiency, knowledge storage and predictability.

The FMEA basic knowledge compact / FMEA for managers offers a comprehensive overview of the application areas and the embedding of the FMEA method in quality strategies. Extended working methods as well as the distinction between system, construction and process FMEA are discussed. An important core element of the seminar is the VDA-compliant application of the 7 steps of the FMEA, which has firmly established itself across all industries.
