FMEA is an engineering prediction analysis of possible errors (operation failures, breakdowns) and its consequences (effects) carried out by a team of experts of the subject area. The experts thoroughly analyze the product or the production process in the initial stages of product development, with the intention to remove any foreseeable threats, that could have negative consequences.
FMEA stands as a guide aimed at developing comprehensive plans for action, which will reduce any risks associated with the system, its subsystem and manufacturing process components to an acceptable level.
The purpose of the FMEA method is to identify and completely understand potential errors (operation failures, breakdowns), its causes and consequences (effects) in the system or at the end-users, for each product or process respectively. Also, estimates the risk associated with potential errors (operation failures, breakdowns), its consequences and causes, which forms a basis of corrective action priority list and recognize and implement corrective measures for critical threats..
- The primary goal of FMEA is improving the process and its flow
- Identifying and preventing security threats
- Minimizing production loss
- Improving process control plans (in case of FMEA processes)
- Changing system, product or process structure
- Recognizing important production or process characteristics
- Developing preventive maintenance plans for machinery and equipment
- Developing web diagnostic techniques and methods
Failure mode and effect analysis
After the analysis of possible failures, the Quama system calculates the risk index. Based on the results, necessary corrective measures are defined. The corrective measures should and will, eliminate any causes of foreseen operation failures.
The final result of the FMEA is an automatically generated report, considering possible operation failures and its consequences.
The solution is intended for enterprises that have well-defined serial or production processes i.e. processes and activities that rarely change (except for process improvements or upgrades); and for enterprises that is heavily engaged in product design, with major financial and security at stake.
- Increased quality, reliability and process security.
- Provides any organization with structured process of finding and correcting errors
- Reduced time and costs in process development
- Monitors and records all risk reduction activities
- Helps to increase customer satisfaction
