Failure modes and effects analysis FMEA is a step-by-step approach for identifying all possible failures in a design, a manufacturing or assembly process, or a product or service. Failures are any errors or defects, especially ones that affect the customer, and can be potential or actual.
It represents the culmination of a three year project completely revising FMEA methodology. We like that there will be a common methodology worldwide and that it brings together the best FMEA practices that have been used around the globe for decades.
We also like the tone of the document that makes it clear that FMEAs are comprehensive, analytical and fact-based. But, change is hard and those of us who are very comfortable with current FMEA methodology may feel like we are learning a new language as we cut our teeth with the new process.
Implementation Needs to be Fast-Tracked Given the time and effort put into creating this new methodology and updated document, it is unlikely that major changes will be made to the overall process based on comments received over the next few months.
So, we are digging into the Handbook with the expectation that this will become the new normal for FMEAs in the automotive industry.
Online Training on the New Methodology is Under Development We plan to have an FMEA training course on the new methodology available as soon after the final publication of the handbook as possible. Join our maillist if you want to know as soon as our training is available or if you would like to receive updates on our interpretation of the changes.
In the meantime, we are happy to report that some of the improvements highlighted in the new Handbook have always been a part of how we teach FMEAs in all of our existing courses.
See the Changes for Yourself You can get a sneak peek at this new manual as well as provide input during the comment period.ReliaSoft XFMEA software is praised for its ease of use while offering highly configurable analysis and reporting capabilities.
It’s a great tool for facilitating FMEA team workshops/meetings, combined with a risk discovery tool that offers enough flexibility to accommodate all FMEA techniques.. You can easily link the FMEA analysis to reliability block diagrams (RBDs) and fault trees.
