What Is An FMEA? A tool used to evaluate - potential failure modes and their causes. o Prioritizes Potential Failures according to their Risk and drives actions to eliminate or reduce their likelihood of occurrence. o Provides a discipline/methodology for documenting this analysis for future use and continuous process improvement. o By its self, an FMEA is NOT a problem solver. It is used in combination with other problem solving tools. ‘The FMEA presents the opportunity but does not solve the problem.’ How FMEA Fits With Elements of TQM o Customer Requirements o Engineering Specifications o System and Components Specifications o Process and Supplier Requirements and
