This is a complete guide to failure mode and effect analysis (Fmea) - the process of understanding and applying a methodological approach to problems, errors, and failures. Author D.H. Stamatis explains the process of conducting system, design, process, and service Fmeas, and provides the rationale for doing so. Issues that are completely addressed include: What an Fmea is, how an Fmea is used, if Fmea can be applied to all industries, how Fmea applies to service industries, how it applies to the ISO 9000 series of quality standards, and more. This text also establishes the legal need for an Fmea and its relationship to product liability. A variety of examples of Fmea forms, checklists, and sample guidelines is another unique feature of this book. A summary of mathematical formulae and tools used in Fmea is also presented. The more than 10 real-world examples and how-to specifics show how Fmea can work for any organization.
