ISO/TS 16949 Failure Mode Effects Analysis – FMEA
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) was one of the first systematic techniques for failure analysis. It was developed by reliability engineers in the 1950s to study problems that might arise from malfunctions of military systems. An FMEA is often the first step of a system reliability study. It involves reviewing components, assemblies, and subsystems as thoroughly as possible in order to identify failure modes, their causes and their effects. Each item is then ranked for Risk. Each item and the resulting information is tabulated in a specific FMEA worksheet.
Different types of FMEA analysis exist, for example –
- Design, and
- Process FMEA
A successful FMEA is used to identify potential failure modes based on experience with similar products and processes. It is widely used in development and manufacturing industries in various phases of the product life cycle.
