Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) is a term used more and more frequently throughout the diving industry, but exactly what is a diving system FMECA?
Namaka Subsea, a subsea consulting company offering innovative solutions to the oil and gas industry throughout the world, has developed a one-day Fmeca awareness course. The course is designed to provide awareness of the methodology and process of completing a diving system FMECA as well as guidance on how best to review current diving system FMECA’s.
The course is made up of sixteen modules, which are discussed in depth and contain essential information required not only to understand how a FMECA should be carried out but also how to manage a FMECA upon completion and is aimed at all diving operational personnel.
Sandy Harper (Namaka Subsea, Managing Director) said “Studies carried out by Namaka Susea of current diving system FMEA and FMECA assessments has identified failures of the assessments and how they are managed. Therefore, we decided to develop this course to provide awareness of how a systematic assessment can be carried out on diving systems and Support Vessel Interfaces, with the emphasis on diver and operational personnel safety”.
The FMECA of a diving system shall assess the effects on different failure modes on the diving system operating equipment and where required the support vessel interfaces. The resultant quantification may highlight deficiencies in design, lack of redundancy and failure to maintain the recommended critical spares to ensure safe and efficient diving operations.
