Failure Modes & Effects Analysis (FMEA) -

What is a Failure Modes & Effects Analysis (FMEA)?

Failure Modes & Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a risk management tool that identifies and quantifies the influence of potential failures in a system.

FMEA analyzes potential failures using three criteria: 1) Occurrence (failure cause and frequency), 2) Severity (determine failure mode and its effect), and 3) Detection (likelihood of failure detection).
