Course Overview:

This intensive two day course will introduce industry personnel to the principles of Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis processes. This will include a comprehensive review and discussion of what is meant by FMEA and FMECA, the essential components, suggested level of detail, scope, complexity and options for the analysis. The course will further delve into areas of analysis, with the risk assessment and residual risk being ranked against set criteria.

An outline of the current diving industry stance from, Class, IOGP and IMCA as well as their similarities and differences. A great emphasis on the use of the process along with other diving system assurance tools; however it is to take note that the formula for a successful FMEA / FMECA is the same for other equipment such as ROV, Ships, Cranes etc.  Making the document readable, live and above all useful is the aim of the process and subsequently the aim of this course.

In providing a detailed understanding of the FMEA / FMECA structure and the methodology of conducting the process, it is aimed at enabling course candidates to consider their role in the team or organisational structure involved in the creation of a FMEA / FMECA report.

Course Objectives: 

To enable course delegates to understand the methodology, protocols, scope, complexity and expectations required in the FMEA / FMECA process along with its place in the assurance tools process.
