Basic Failure Analysis Training

Course Data Sheet

Course Description: Basic Failure Analysis (BFA) is intended to provide facility personnel the requisite skills and knowledge to eliminate the problems and chronic failures that they are experiencing everyday on the job. 

Attendees are provided instruction on a unique 4-step process that guides them through the technique of solving problems and failures down to their root cause(s) using real world examples.   In addition, BFA details guidelines for the support mechanisms necessary to implement countermeasures to identified root cause(s).  

Because of its modular design, BFAexercises utilize examples of the different types of failures that are experienced by various organizations (safety, maintenance, environmental, administrative, process, operational, etc.).  This enables BFAto be tailored to meet the specific needs of plants and organizations.

Course Duration: 1 Day (½ day instructional presentation – ½ day practical exercises)

Objectives: Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:

  • Identify different Problem Solving Methods.
  • Identify the process used for structured problem solving.
  • Devise a data collection strategy for the analysis effort.
  • Use the 5P’s to determine the information needed to solve failures and problems.
  • Define the elements that comprise a logic tree.
  • Identify the two elements that form the TOP BOX of a logic tree.
  • Use logic trees to solve failures and problems down to their root cause(s)
  • Generate countermeasures to eliminate identified root causes of failures.
  • Obtain the required support to implement recommendations that will eliminate failure.
