FMEDA - Failure Modes, Effects and Diagnostic Coverage Analysis

Categories Safety Relevant Development

General Information
2 Days

As an extension of the failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), the failure modes, effects and diagnostic coverage analysis (FMEDA) provides a proven method for calculating the parameters required by safety standards such as ISO 26262 or IEC 61508.


Theoretical foundations

  • Introduction to the subject - Foundations of the FMEDA
  • Objectives and benefits of the FMEDA
  • Time and effort required, planning, teams, preparation
  • FMEA in correlation with FMEDA
  • Generation of failure rates
  • Component failures (dangerous, not dangerous)
  • Calculation parameters (DC, PFH, PFD, SFF)
  • FMEDA results on the system level (connection to FTA)

Practical exercises and examples

  • Implementation of an FMEDA
  • Dealing with the results
  • Connection using an FTA analysis
  • Presentation of an FMEDA analysis
  • Sharing experience and practical tips
Target audience
  • Future FMEDA facilitators, project managers, quality managers, development engineers
  • Experience with development projects
