Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (PFMEA), is an analytical method to ensure potential problems have been considered, assessed for risk and actioned as part of both product and process design. It provides a record of an organisations collective knowledge about products and processes. A documented description linking manufacturing process steps to key inspection and control activities.
The intent of a control plan is to control the design characteristics and the process variables to ensure product quality. This course covers the PFMEA and Control Plan requirements for AS9145 – Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval Process and the linkage between the two documents.
This standard defines requirements for the identification, assessment, mitigation, and prevention of risk in the manufacturing process through the application of Process Flow Diagrams (PFDs), Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and Control Plans throughout the life cycle of a product.
This standard aligns and collaborates with the requirements of AS9100, AS9102, AS9103, and AS9145.
Who should attend?
This course is designed for Implementation Teams, Internal Auditors and others who are involved in the implementation or auditing of Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis and Control Plans.
Benefits and Learning Objectives
PFMEA is used to support the introduction of new products and processes as well as supporting changes to existing products and processes.
It is often mandated by aerospace and other engineering primary manufacturers as a specific requirement to support the goal of defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste. Companies that apply PFMEA and Control Plans successfully, see improved product conformity, better on time delivery performance and a reduction in the cost of non-quality.
Delegates will become competent in creating and analysing process FMEA’s / Control Plans and develop an understanding of the methods to implement Failure Mode and Effects Analysis and Control Plans within their organisation.
- Purpose and overview of the FMEA process
- General review of FMEA principles

- FMEA ranking tables and scoring
- Key Characteristics and Critical Issues identification
- Purpose and overview of Control Plans
- Control Plan linkage
- Understanding the process
- Value added controls
- Reaction plans
Upon completion of the course you will receive an Industry Forum certificate of attendance.
