FMEA and FMECA Information

Spend a few minutes touring the site to learn more about the different types (Concept,
Design, and Process), along with many of the benefits of performing a Failure Mode and
Effects Analysis.
Check back often, or better yet, just bookmark our site, as we add new FMEA examples
and helpful  information on a regular basis. If you have a colleague that could benefit from

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) or FMECA
is a systematic analysis approach, which facilitates the
identification of potential problems in a design or process
by examining the effects of lower level failure modes. As a
result of the analysis, recommended actions are made to  
eliminate or reduce failures. Also, compensating provisions
like adding redundancy for critical systems may be
proposed to mitigate risk, if in fact, the failure does occur.

Over the years this valuable analysis technique has been
used effectively in the space program and in many other
industries. Today, it is a recommended best practice and
an integral part of most any successful quality program. If
you are interested in learning more about FMEA, then this
site will provide you with not only a good introduction to
both FMEA and FMECA, but it will arm you with many
valuable resources.
