I understand the desirability and importance of having the DFMEA on hand when preparing a PFMEA. However, is it an absolute requirement? Can you reasonably expect to be able to complete a PFMEA without access to the design?

IMHO, since design changes are not meant as fixes for PFMEAs, all is not lost just because we don't have a design.

What say you all

Nope - the requirement is not 'absolute'. Many times a non-design responsible supplier cannot get a DFMEA from their customer.

I would say most times the DFMEA is not available.

You're right. I was being overly optimistic using the word 'many' instead of 'most'.
