About “S” FMECA Training

Supportability Failure Modes, Effects, Criticality Analysis, also termed Supportability FMECA or “S” FMECA is a process similar to other Failure Modes and Effects Analyses (FMEA), but it is focused on identifying those failure modes that will possibly occur in-service and will likely need remediation, restoration, and/or prevention during the life of the equipment.

In contrast to a design FMEA which is focused on the elimination of defects at piece-part levels, the “S” FMECA focuses on the systems, components, and levels of indenture that the users of the equipment will likely have to repair and perform maintenance on. The “S” FEMCA also adds a criticality analysis that aids in prioritizing failure modes for further analysis and decisions on where resources should be applied. An “S” FMECA is typically less intensive than a traditional design FMEA. A proper “S” FMECA is the foundation for all other supportability analyses.

Our “S” FMECA training provides attendees with the knowledge to begin performing a Supportability based Failure Modes, Effects, and Criticality Analysis. For Supportability or Logistics Engineers involved in performing supportability analysis, this course will provide an understanding of how the FMECA process supports the supportability analysis process and the importance of correctly identifying failure modes to ensure that supportability analysis is performed accurately and efficiently. This training is especially beneficial to those involved in Reliability-Centered Maintenance analysis projects or other efforts focused on improving maintenance processes or in-service reliability.

The Goal

Supportability FMECA aims to identify those failures that may occur in the life of a physical asset or fleet and require remediation. Learn the analysis methods used by leading OEMs, Program and Asset Managers, and Supportability experts to develop support programs that ensure reliability and optimum performance in your assets. These techniques can be applied formally or informally in any industry including military, industrial, or fleet environments.

History of "S" FMECA

 

The FMECA (Failure Modes, Effects, Criticality Analysis) process was originally developed by the U.S military and document in the publication of MIL–P–1629. By the early 1960s, NASA and its contractors began incorporated variations of FMECA in their development of various spacecraft including Apollo, Viking, Voyager, Magellan, and Galileo, releasing a formal FMECA procedure in 1966.

At about the same time, Civil Aviation also began using FMECA. In 1967 the Society for Automotive Engineers (SAE) released its first publication to address FMECA for aviation SAE ARP926 . Today civil aviation continues to use both FMEA and related Fault Tree Analysis per SAE ARP4761.

In the 1970s, Ford Motor Company began using FMEA after experiencing problems related to the Ford Pinto. Its adoption by Ford led to widespread use across the automotive industry. By 1985, in Europe, the International Electrotechnical Commission published IEC 812 (now IEC 60812), addressing FMEA and FMECA for general use and The British Standards Institute published BS 5760–5 in 1991 for general purpose.

In 1980, MIL–STD–1629A replaced both MIL–STD–1629 and the 1977 aeronautical FMECA standard MIL–STD–2070. MIL–STD–1629A was canceled without replacement in 1998 but remains in use for military and space applications today and is widely referenced in many other industries.
