Course Duration: 2 Days - 8 Hours/day

This two-day workshop is designed to help your company conduct algorithm FMEA on a new program and software design program development.

Algorithm FMEA analysis is conducted by software engineering develop teams to identify critical failure risk within the program concept which can cause faults and a failure to meet program risk goals. Software analysis is used in critical and safety and non-safety related programs.

Learning Objectives

  • Be able to perform an Algorithm FMEA analysis during any phase of the development process
  • Be proficient in Algorithm FMEA immediately after completing this workshop
  • Study examples of Algorithm FMEA from real-world systems
