Create a Simple Framework To Validate FMEA Performance

Summary: Organizations can optimize the application of failure mode effect analysis (FMEA) by creating a framework that provides feedback on FMEA performance. The effectiveness of FMEA performance can be determined by what occurs after the product or process reaches the customer. The implementation of a feedback loop creates a shared learning process that connects the customer experience to the project team. A pilot study in a small Midwestern design and manufacturing firm demonstrates why an FMEA validation process is a valuable tool that produces both quality improvement and profit enhancing results. A sidebar article provides FMEA background and basics.
