Title: Matching Design FMEA Styles to Program Objectives and Personal Engineering Culture
Speaker: Adam Bahret
Date: Wednesday, August 13, 12-1pm PDT

There are many styles of Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) practiced in industry today. For an organization it can be difficult to know which best matches their program objectives and culture. Overcoming the reluctance of participation due to their time consuming nature and finding a way to implement the corrective actions into a fast moving development program is difficult. Many FMEAs only yield a fraction of their potential benefit because of these challenges. This webinar will discuss these FMEA types and how to overcome these engagement and implementation challenges.
