Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
Any organization committed to continually improving its products and processes has need for the capability to conduct Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA). FMEA is an analytical technique to identify potential process or product failures, assess the potential customer effects of the failures, and indicate the variables of control to reduce failure conditions. As such, it is an important tool in the Product Commercialization Cycle, Six Sigma improvement, and a requirement in the QS-9000 and TS-16949 automotive industry standards.
The real power of FMEA comes when the analysis is done up front, before a failure occurs. This is when changes can be made most easily and least expensively. It is, therefore, complementary to the design process as well as to the corrective action. 1.4 CEUs

Norbert Jagodzinski is a member of the adjunct faculty at the John D. Hromi Center for Quality and Applied Statistics at RIT. Also, he is a commercial pilot, owner and operator of Jag’s Aerial Photographic Service for the last 21 years. He has extensive experience in applying reliability topics such as Failure Mode and Effects Analysis and tolerance analysis at Sylvania Electronics, Bell Aerosystems, Prestolite, and Eastman Kodak Company.
Norm has provided statistical computer programs to Hewlett-Packard that led to private tutorials with Dr. Gus Weiss, scientific adviser to Presidents G. Ford and J. Carter. He also testified as an expert witness on the subject of Reliability. He has authored the book entitled Failure Mode and Effects Analysis, with special acknowledgement to USAF, and also has developed reliability software programs available on the CD, “Maintenance: Partner of Reliability”.
