How to use Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) to get the reliability you need

How to use Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) to get the reliability you need

For every action taken to maintain a piece of equipment, a Failure Mode—or cause of failure—is managed. That is why a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an essential part of physical asset management. When done properly, an FMEA helps organizations: 1) Define equipment goals, 2) Identify what could cause Reliability to suffer, and…
