Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM) Program
The DRBFM program was developed to promote the methodology focused on change management, continuous improvement, and reliability. It centers on early prevention and engineering knowledge, eliminating time spent debating ranking systems, waiting for lead engineers to document and list their concerns, identifying what types of concerns are open for discussion and resolution, and brainstorming without any actionable closure. SAE Credentialing has developed three programs of focus, Certificate of Competence for personnel interested in learning about DRBFM. The Professional Certification focuses on individuals who lead teams that apply DRBFM, and the Expert Certification focuses on individuals who facilitate DRBFM and serve as a DRBFM mentors.
