Asset Management nowadays has to meet a broad range of business and SHE objectives of the company and therefore requires a multidisciplinary approach. FMECA, failure mode effect and criticality analysis, is a practical instrument to analyze and compile all these aspects in one overview which is comprehensible for all people involved in the asset management process, including those on the shop floor.

However, a FMECA facilitation is a complex task. One needs to understand the system with its functions on a conceptual level and must understand the explanations of experts about failures, preventive measures and operational procedures. The facilitator should know everything about the principles of failure mode, effect and criticality analysis as well as the specific tools and templates which are used in the company.

Critical to success is a facilitator who is aware of the group dynamics during the FMECA sessions. The facilitator must be able to switch roles between attention to people, process and technical complex content.

This training course will highlight:

  • The FMECA principles, methods, templates and process (also Root Cause Analysis, Reliability Centered Maintenance)
  • Theory: the analytical basis of ‘FMECA thinking’ – risk, functions, norms, causality, risks, criticality, preventive and corrective actions
  • The characteristics of FMECA data gathering: facts, level of detail, use of language in multidisciplinary teams
  • The dynamics in multidisciplinary teams and thinking preferences
  • Facilitator skills as systematic questioning, listening, recapitulating, dealing with frustrations, managing the process, flexible workflow, keep in control and delegate whenever possible
