In a process FMEA just how much detail do you add?

If you had a customer complaint and you resolve the issue do you list everything that you changedin your process in the PFMEA?

If you are being required to provide an updated PFMEA as a part of the verification package for closure of an External Corrective Action, I would show the changes that were the result of what you determined as the root cause. IMO you should show the old RPN prior to the change, the new RPN after the change and the date it was incorporated into your system to show that you have institutionalized the change.

IMHO if the additional changes resulted in improving the process and lower the risks associated with the process then the answer is yes add them to your PFMEA. Remeber that it is supposed to be a dynamic document that provides a guide to for you to use in planning your future process designs.

Yes the PFMEA should have the deatils of the corrective and preventive action taken to avodie the failaure mode,Since the control should be effective and the same should me followed to avoid the failaure in the future .(to prevent the failaure mode in near future.)
