Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
Improve the Quality of your Automotive Parts, Materials and Components
Utilize FMEA at the start of your product and process development to ensure potential problems and actual errors are considered and addressed throughout your development cycle. By studying the consequences of failure modes and mechanisms, our engineers can help you prioritize risks based on seriousness and frequency, and ultimately perform accelerated stress testing to pinpoint and address product issues. Failures can occur at anytime during development, production, assembly, transportation, or end-use. Understanding the true cause of the failure is essential in making profitable choices in fixing the problem.
Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DMFEA) is a method for evaluating your design against potential failures. Many OEMs now require their automotive suppliers to develop a robust DFMEA in accordance with the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) process.
Process Failure Modes & Effects Analysis (PFMEA) analyses manufacturing and assembly processes at the system, subsystem and component levels in order to provide recommended actions targeted at eliminating the root cause of potential failures.
