FMEAs Have Failure Modes?
The team developing the FMEA turns out to be one individual.
The FMEA is created to satisfy a customer or third party requirement, NOT to improve the process.
The FMEA is developed too late in the process and does not improve the product/process development cycle.
The FMEA is not reviewed and revised during the life of the product. It is not treated as a dynamic tool.
The FMEA is perceived either as too complicated or as taking too much time.
