Design FMEA Scope

Your DFMEA team will be most effective when the scope of the FMEA is well-defined.

The DFMEA Scope Worksheet provides your team with the information necessary to clarify and fully understand the scope of the study.

If the scope of a DFMEA seems too big, the FMEA team should consider breaking it up into two or three complementary studies.

Once your FMEA team has defined the scope of the DFMEA, they should complete the FMEA Team Start-Up Worksheet. The worksheet will help clarify roles and responsibilities and define boundaries of freedom for the team.
