Certification Course on FMEA and RCFA in collaboration with dss+

Context Setting

Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) : Pre-empt failures, failure effects and develop countermeasures to improve Asset Reliability. 

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a powerful tool to help anticipate and prevent failures by identifying, evaluating and mitigating failure mechanisms. An effective FMEA process can help organizations avoid process upsets, improve equipment Reliability and prevent defects in equipment, product and services. FMEA is also used to drive risk reduction related to failure of assets, covering both potential Safety and Business risks. FMEA is implemented both in the design as well as in the process stage of an asset, with the following anticipated benefits:

  • Address critical failure modes in early design phase and make necessary corrections in equipment or process design
  • Reduce impact and likelihood of failures that can have an impact on business, health & safety of organization.
  • Establish proactive maintenance of equipment and control measures.
  • Reduced scrap or rework.
  • Fewer customer complaints
  • Improved product and services

Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) : Effective investigation of equipment failures to systemically enhance Asset Reliability. 

Even with the most robust of maintenance strategies, equipment will fail. Often, their failure has an adverse effect on the process as well as on other components /equipment. Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) is a tool used to determine the physical, human, and systems root causes causing a failure. An effective and fact-based RCFA process is integral to an organization’s journey towards continuous improvement and can be applied to either chronic or sporadic failures.


This Interactive Course on FMEA and RCFA is designed to help managers to understand and learn core concepts of FMEA and RCFA and their application to improve reliability of equipment or systems, while in operation.

Key Takeaways

At the end of course, the participants will have an improved understanding of FMEA and RCFA as the key tools to improve reliability of their assets.
