Decisions made during the designing process are essential from costs and clients demands point of view. Unfortunately, very often, chosen solutions are not free from errors. Their fast elimination and replacing with better, more effective solution isn?t hard and most of all it?s not expensive on designing stage. Preventing errors expenses are much lower than their costs. According to analysis up to 75% of errors appears in designing and planning stage, that?s why it?s necessary to develop this phase participants’ knowledge and apply preventive methods before errors get any farther.

It?s alarming that 80% of appeared errors is not eliminated until stage of final inspection and exploitation, so at the time when it?s costs are multiply higher than on designing stage. We need to remember that bearing defined preventive costs in the right time, implies multiply bigger drop of bad quality costs ? in the end total quality costs level is dropping and quality itself is increasing.

FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis) and its extension to critical states evaluation FMECA (Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis) is quality tool, which goal is to find potential causes and results of errors made during designing and to eliminate them before finished product is ready.

This training gives solid grounds for performing FMEA supported by real examples. Participants are gaining practical knowledge and skills to perform FMEA process as well as they get to know how does it connect to whole designing processes. They learn how to connect FMEA with problem solving tools such as 8D or QRQC methods etc.
