CMQ 260 Failure Mode Effects Analysis
RETIRED 7/8/20 AND REPLACED WITH CMQ 261. The course provides students with concepts and tools in Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA). It is intended to provide knowledge and skills to identify failure modes with relatively high probability and severity of consequences. The results of FMEA are then used to determine risk and criticality resulting in the ability of Quality Assurance personnel to plan their surveillance accordingly to mitigate the identified risk.
