What is FMEA?
The failure mode is the way in which a specific thing might fail. Failures occur due to an error or mistake during development. Effect analysis is the study of the outcomes or consequences of those failures. They together make Failure Mode and Effect Analysis or FMEA.
The main aim of FMEA is to take necessary actions to mitigate or minimize the failures as much as possible. The process begins with the ones of the utmost priority. It also prepares documentation that includes details like current knowledge, actions about risks of failures, and areas for improvement. This data is used to evaluate and prepare strategies for avoiding failures. Ideally, the process of FMEA commences during the early stages of designing and continues throughout the product life cycle.
