What is Failure Mode and Effects Analysis?

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) techniques have been around for over 40 years. In recent years, use of FMEAs has gained popularity as a quality improvement tool. This interest is in large part due to the automotive industry and specifically its IAFT 16949 supplier requirements. Other major industries, including aerospace, medical products and electronics are also using FMEA techniques as part of their improvement and risk assessment strategies. Unlike many quality improvement tools, FMEAs do not require complicated statistics. FMEA studies can yield significant savings for a company as well as reduce the potential liability of a process or product that does not perform as promised.
