What is Design Risk Analysis?

A Design Risk Analysis is an analytical technique used to identify potential failure modes related to product performance (i.e. fit, form, function), durability, service life, reliability, operational ease, maintainability and cost and to ensure that they have been considered and addressed by the design of the product.


Reducing inherent risk in design and preventing failure of a product are critical in multiple industries such as aerospace, automobiles, software, healthcare, regulated industries etc. The risk assessment and mitigation should be proactive and not reactive. Our DFMEA program provides a thorough understanding of Design Risk Analysis Tools, namely Design FMEA and Fault Tree Analysis. It covers the preparatory work to be done before DFMEA and linkages between DFMEA and FTA. We have conducted such a course for Boeing, USA in the past.


To equip Design professionals to nuances of one of the most advanced and proactive approaches in the world of Quality – Design FMEA. To explain how previous knowledge feeds into DFMEA, how to carry out FMEA at system, sub system and component level. To provide an understanding of FTA and its formats. To explain linkages between DFMEA and FTA.
