Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Resource Center

FMEA Resource Center

Failure mode and effects analysis resource center

Every product or process has modes of failure. The effects represent the impact of the failures. An FMEA is a tool to:

  • Identify the relative risks designed into a product or process.
  • Initiate action to reduce those risks with the highest potential impact.
  • Track the results of the action plan in terms of risk reduction.

FMEAs help us focus on and understand the impact of potential process or product risks. A systematic methodology is used to rate the risks relative to each other.
