Identifies potential product related process failure modes.
Assesses the potential customer effects of the failures.
Identifies the potential manufacturing or assembly process causes and identifies process variables on which to focus controls for occurrence reduction or detection of the failure conditions.
Develops a ranked list of potential failure modes, thus establishing a priority system for corrective action considerations.
Documents the results of the manufacturing or assembly process.
Identifies process deficiencies to enable engineers to focus on controls for reducing the occurrence of producing unacceptable products, or on methods to increase the detection of unacceptable products.
Identifies confirmed Critical Characteristics and/or Significant Characteristics and aids in development of thorough Manufacturing or Assembly Control Plans.
Identifies operator safety concerns.
Feeds information on design changes required and manufacturing feasibility back to the design community.
