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.
