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 3) Assign criticality. Join Nancy as she shares how to avoid common FMEA pitfalls, and how to use a properly executed FMEA to make effective maintenance decisions.
