FMEA stands for “Failure Mode and Effects Analysis”. Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an important part of any reliability and safety process or product design or redesign activity. 

The Fault Hazard Analysis of a subsystem is an engineering analysis that answers a series of questions:
What can fail?
How it can fail?
How frequently will it fail?
What are the effects of the failure?

Design Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) is a method of predicting the failure modes of major functional parts and assessing the impact of those modes on a system (product).
We shall apply design FMEA to comprehensively evaluate the frequency of occurrence, impact, frequency of detection, and risk of each failure mode, to devise the most optimal preventive measures and improve product quality.

What happens when something fails? Do you know why it failed, or even how to begin the process of determining what went wrong?
Failure analysis and investigation can determine the root cause of failure should your product, component or asset fail or not perform as expected. The findings provide you with the insight to solve the problem, take remedial action and prevent recurrence.

What is included in a failure analysis?
I have a broken component. Why did it break?
Can a failure analysis pinpoint the exact cause of the failure?

No chain is stronger than its weakest link. Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a well-proven method for studying problems that may arise from single failures in technical systems.

An FMEA becomes a failure mode, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA) if the criticality of the failure mode effects is analyzed.

FMECA involves reviewing all relevant components of a technical system in order to identify failure modes and their corresponding effects.

Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) FAQ

What is FMEA and where it is used ?

FMEA stands for “Failure Mode and Effects Analysis”. Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an important part of any safety process or product design or redesign activity. 

Who need FMEA ?

In fact, It is mostly recommended for product designer, product engineer as well as production manager, etc.

What’s about RCA & FMEA ? Are Both Same ?

Generally, both are different. And comes at different phases. Root cause analysis (RCA) is a structured way to address problems after they occur. FMEA involves identifying and eliminating process failures for the purpose of preventing an undesirable event when it comes to safety.

Does FMEA need team based approach ?

Yes, it is. This team-based activity can dramatically improve product performance. It can also reduce manufacturing issues at the component, system, and processing level.

FMEA word treasures.

Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Event Tree Analysis (ETA), Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP), Common Cause Failure Analysis (CCFA), Operational-Support Hazard Analysis (OSHA), Cause Consequence Analysis (CCA), Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) and Petri Nets (PN)

What courses should i take in FMEA category ?

FMEA is a term under systems engineering field. Courses like Applied Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Workshop, DFMEA Training , FMEA for medical devices, PFMEA,SFMEA are essential. We at Tonex offer all those course.
