The recognition that all well-managed companies are interested in preventing or at least minimizing risk in their operations is the concept of risk management analysis. This pocket guide explores the process of evaluation of risk by utilizing one of the core methodologies available: the failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA). The intent in this “Pocket FMEA” is to provide the reader with a booklet that makes the FMEA concept easy to understand and provide some guidelines as to why FMEA is used in so many industries with positive results. The booklet is not a complete reference on FMEA, but rather a summary guide for anyone who wants some fast information regarding failures and how to deal with them. It covers risk, reliability and FMEA, prerequisites of FMEA, what an FMEA is, robustness, the FMEA form and rankings, types of FMEA, and much more.

This book is intended for small business owners and non-engineers such as researchers, business analysts, project managers, small non-profits, community groups, religious organizations, and others who want an assessment tool that can provide methods for: - identifying the areas or actions that may be at risk for failure - ranking the risks that they may be facing, and - determining the degree of threat being faced. While an FMEA is a tool of reliability engineering, this book sidesteps the complex approach that reliability engineering can take; therefore, it does not cover all aspects and applications of an FMEA. This book provides sufficient information about FMEAs, without requiring the expertise of an engineer or statistical analyst, to establish specifications and for making cost-effective, informed decisions. FMEAs are valuable for: - developing policies and standard operating procedures (SOPs) - developing system, design, and process requirements that eliminate or minimize the likelihood of failures - developing designs, methods, and test systems to ensure that errors or failures are automatically corrected, errors or failures are flagged for correction, the potential for errors or failures have been eliminated, or risks are reduced to acceptable levels - developing and evaluating of diagnostic systems, and - helping with design choices (trade-off analysis)

Today’s project manager has more to manage than just project scope, deliverables, communications and teams. They are also expected to manage large volumes of project-related data. And the expectation goes beyond just managing the data. It extends into creating great visualizations that allow stakeholders to fully digest that large volume of data in a manner that is quick, effective and clear. They are also expected to serve as facilitators in the use of visual thinking tools as a method for working through project issues, risks and problems. These new expectations require new skills. The era of multi-page, text-based project status reporting is over. The era of visual project management is here. Time to “skill up!”
