Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) – Risk Analysis And Management


Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) is a powerful risk assessment technique that today has broad applicability to many industries including manufacturing, healthcare, medical device, food and drug, software, and services. Risk analysis and management are both requirements in many quality, safety and environmental standards such as ISO 9001, 14001, 18001, AS9100, and TS16949. FMEA can help an organization comply with those requirements.

Using a systematic approach initially popularized in military circles, FMEA is a risk analysis and management tool by which we examine potential product and process failures and, in turn, determine the need for and way to address means to prevent or lessen the impact of those potential failures.
