Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), including design (DFMEA) and process (PFMEA), is an important part of advanced quality planning (AQP) or Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP). Its purpose is to identify potential failure modes (how the product or process could cause poor quality or, even worse, safety problems) along with their severity, likelihood of occurrence, and likelihood of detection and therefore interception. Deliverables consists of identifying critical to quality characteristics and action plans for eliminating or mitigating risks related to them. Some FMEA concepts (assessment of severity and probability) carry over to ISO 9001:2015's requirement for risk-based thinking.
