Dailmer-Chrysler, Ford Motor Co, and General Motors, Potential Failure Mode and Effect Analysis
(FMEA) Reference Manual, Automotive Industry Action Group.
One of the tools that allows evaluating actions that will increase the reliability is the failure mode and effect analysis
Such methods, discussed in this book, include practical risk analysis, failure mode and effect analysis
, preliminary hazard analysis, progressive failure analysis, fault tree analysis, mean time between failures, Wohler curves, finite element analysis, cohesive zone models, crack propagation kinetics, time-temperature collectives, quantitative characterization of fatigue damage, and fracture maps.
Failure mode and effect analysis
(FMEA) is an analytical technique used to identif, potential failure modes and their associated causes.
The concept of failure mode and effect analysis as a quality enhancement technique was adopted in the mid-1960's by the aerospace industry and in the early '70s by the automotive industry.
Failure Mode and Effect Analysis provides a method of studying failure and its effects while establishing corrective action priorities before a design goes into production.
