What is an FMEA and How Can It Help?
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.
“Failure modes” means the ways, or modes, in which something might fail.
Failures are any errors or defects, especially ones that affect the customer and can be potential or actual. They typically include the component, the damage or problem with it and the cause of it
“Effects analysis” refers to studying the consequences of those failures.
