This is not meant to be sarcastic, but one is on a system and one is on a concept. If you think about the differences, it should become clear.

Take a concept such as windshield wipers which turn on automatically when it rains. You FMEA the concept, in part for feasibility.

Then let's say you decide to do it and you design a system (combination of mechanical and electronic) and you then FMEA that.

Thank you for your response Mr.smith
But When I studied these subjects it seems that there is'nt any defference between them.even all of definition in the concept and system FMEA is the same.do you have a perfect refrence to these type of FMEA?

Hey Buddy,

Nothing is perfect. A FMEA is a FMEA, it is a process of determining possible pepples in the road ahead. It really doesn't matter if it is a design, process, system, concept etc... the tools are basically the same.

You used the term feasibility, we all do it but when you come down to it the feasibility and FMEA serve the same purpose. Don't get caught up in symantics.

Just my lowly opinion.

Good Luck!

Is everyone aware that the 3rd edition on the fmea handbook has been released? I ordered mine yesterday.
Al, I wouldn't worry about what you call your fmea as long as you are doing them. And you can do them on anything. If you have a customer request to do concept fmeas then by all means call your fmeas concept fmeas.
