Product FMEA vs. Process FMEA - Aerospace Industry Machine Shop

#1
We are a machine shop that produces parts for the aerospace industry. I have been tasked to create Product FMEA's. My knowledge of FMEA's has been more focused on Process FMEA that have been derived from DFMEAs. Therefore, I am having some difficulty putting my arms around an FMEA strictly for a Product. My thoughts are, a product is a result of a process(es). So creating a Product FMEA will end up being a Process FMEA by default. Can anyone put me on the right path? Thank you in advance.

Do they mean design FMEA?

(I have not heart "product fmea" before)

"They" (my boss) wants to create a Product FMEA. Trust me I have done several FMEAs and I have not heard of it either. I was just wondering if anyone has. Thanks for the reply.

After getting more information and looking at and reading their "Product" FMEA, it appears they just call it Product FMEA, but in reality it is a process FMEA for implementing a new product. The terminology used for the FMEA is not what I am used to seeing, there is no verb - noun association, just statements like, Specifications, or Quality Approvals for the function column. They derived these "statements" by using a fishbone diagram. Again not what I am used to seeing or using as a bases for creating an FMEA.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do...or at least learn the language. Take a look at the process FEMA examples in the Forums, and "create" a PFMEA that will be understood by the management team , operators at your company. For NPI's when you are not the design authority, look to your failure history to see what types of defects are being produced. Then you can fill in the PFMEA like a fault tree.
