Design FMEA Benefits
Aids in the objective evaluation of design requirements and design alternatives.
Aids in the initial design for manufacturing and assembly requirements (known as Design for Manufacturing/Assembly � DFM/DFA).
Increases the probability that potential failure modes and their effects on system and vehicle operation have been considered in the design/development process.
Provides additional information to aid in the planning of thorough and efficient design test and development programs.
Develops a list of potential failure modes ranked according to their effect on the �customer,� thus establishing a priority system for design improvements and development testing.
Provides an open issue format for recommending and tracking risk reducing actions. Can be a reporting tool.
Provides future reference to aid in analyzing field concerns, evaluating design changes and developing advanced designs.
Helps to identify potential Critical Characteristics and Significant Characteristics.
Helps validate the Design Verification Plan (DVP) and the System Design Specifications (SDSs).
