Successfully completing the FMEA in Formula Student

Understanding the purpose of the FMEA submission and successfully meeting its requirements

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a systematic, proactive method for evaluating a process to identify where and how it might fail and to assess the relative impact of different failures, in order to identify the parts of the process that are most in need of change. ‘Failure Modes’ are the different ways in which a system might malfunction and ‘Effect Analysis’ is the study of consequences of the failure. Failures are prioritized according to how serious their consequences are, how frequently they occur, and how easily they can be detected. The purpose of the FMEA is to take actions to eliminate or reduce failures, starting with the highest-priority ones.

What you’ll learn

  • How to approach the FMEA document completion.
  • Pre-Requisites for FMEA.
  • Common Mistakes made in the FMEA.
  • Important Points for Individuals completing the FMEA.

This course will be valuable for any Formula Student participant enrolled within the Electric Vehicle category. The course is meant to empower student participants with the knowledge of understanding the purpose behind the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) documentation and furthermore, fulfilling the requirements towards the submission of the same.

This course has been designed by the organizers of the Formula Bharat competition. While participants are still required to ensure that their documentation aligns with the competition their team has registered for, the knowledge provided in this course will still be relevant.
