Failure Mode and Effects Analysis


Definition: Failure Mode and Effects Analysis is an inductive (forward logic) single point of failure analysis tool used in quality assurance and manufacturing to systematically analyze postulated component failures and identify the resultant effects on system operations.
A successful FMEA activity helps to identify potential failure modes based on experience with similar products and processes or based on common physics of failure logic. It is widely used in development and manufacturing industries in various phases of the product life cycle.
Effects analysis refers to studying the consequences of those failures on different system levels.
