Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), including design (DFMEA) and process (PFMEA), is an important part of advanced quality planning (AQP). Its purpose is to identify potential failure modes (how the product or process could fail to meet customer requirements) along with their severity, likelihood of occurrence, and likelihood of detection and therefore interception. Deliverables include identification of critical to quality characteristics, and action plans for mitigating or eliminating risks associated with them. Some FMEA concepts (assessment of severity and probability) carry over to ISO 9001:2015's requirement for risk-based thinking.
This session by William A. Levinson will help you understand the role of FMEA in advanced quality planning. You will be able to assess the probability and severity of possible failures. You will also learn to recognize critical characteristics for planning improvement through action plans.
