Practical Mechanical FMEDA with FMEDAx™

Course Code: FSE 247-M


Course Description:

The FMEDA method was invented to predict failure rates for each failure mode of a device, subsystem, or component. The ”Practical Mechanical FMEDA with FMEDAx” course explains the FMEDA method, objectives, and output. In this course an example device FMEDA will be done showing the fundamental concepts including environmental profile selection, diagnostic coverage analysis, proof test coverage analysis, part selection, and functional failure modes.

The course includes a copy of the book “Final Elements in Safety Instrumented Systems: IEC 61511 Compliant Systems and IEC 61508 Compliant Products” by Chris O’Brien, Loren Stewart, & Lindsey Bredemeyer.   

The course also includes a trial license of the FMEDAx tool with the MCRHTM mechanical component database. This database contains failure rates, failure modes and failure mode distributions for a variety of operational profiles and applications.
