What is Risk Management?

Risk-free outcomes can be expected only if the risks are assessed and mitigated systematically in a process. A sequence of PFD-PFMEA-Control Plan is needed for this objective. A Process Flow Diagram (PFD) captures the flow of material and/or information in the process from the first to the last step. PFMEA is a risk assessment tool that will help identify what can potentially go wrong. Control Plan is a series of steps to be taken to prevent the risks in the process. This program will equip the participants to create PFD, PFMEA and Control Plan for their processes.


PFMEA was one of the first systematic and structured techniques used for risk assessment. It started in 1950s, with the reliability engineers assessing problems that may arise in the functioning of military systems. It is a proactive tool that helps assess the failures even before they occur. That makes PFMEA, arguably, the most powerful Excellence tool but also the one that is most abused. Involvement of multiple teams and complex processes can make the PFMEA exercise further daunting. Risk Assessment is done thoroughly in advanced industries (like Automotive and Aerospace) using a PFMEA. A PFMEA (Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) is arguably the most powerful Excellence tool but also the one that is most abused. It requires Expert facilitation to carry out initial FMEA’s in any organization. We have conducted this course for Boeing, USA in the past.


To help participants understand the pre-requisites, Do’s and Don’ts of PFMEA. Participants will appreciate the challenges to doing PFMEA including involving cross functional teams. To build expertise in PFMEA so that the participants can create excellent artifacts that help not only in Risk mitigation but also in Knowledge Management.
