Design FMEA

Design FMEA

 

There are several different types of risk analysis tools known as Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA).  Even though what is being analyzed is slightly different and the assessment criteria may change some, the step-by-step approach or technique still remains essentially the same.  Concept, Function, System, Design, and Process are some of the more common types of FMEA.

 

  • The Design FMEA is used to analyze products before they are
    released to production.
  • It focuses on potential failure modes of products  caused by design
    deficiencies.
  • Design FMEAs are normally done at three levels – system, subsystem,
    and component levels
  • This type of FMEA is used to analyze hardware, functions or a
    combination
