Please Help! Failure Analysis Report Template

Hi,
I'm working at a startup and we don't have any FA report template that would go to customer explaining why product failed. Does anyone have a sample template or what should be included? Thanks.

I think that use of a template or form in such an application probably isn't a good idea, as it indicates that failure is a regular occurrence. In general, a straightforward report or letter stating the problem, how it was (or is to be) corrected, and what's been done to prevent recurrence is all that's necessary.

Maybe a FMEA is what you are looking for to anticipate failures, classify, and prevent same. Failure Mode and Effects Analysis. There are many templates for those here. Look at the green Post Attachments, and free files above

Re: Failure Analysis Report Template

See how I am - in the Silicon Valley the chip we talk about is first a semiconductor, then a potato. I'm talking silicon, semiconductor chip.

Re: Failure Analysis Report Template

I agree that having a template is not very optimistic and implies that you will have rejects. However, a template does provide consistency when a failure analysis must be performed. It also serves as a checklist for those performing the evaulation. Here's one that we use.
