Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a step-by-step approach for identifying all possible failures in a design, a manufacturing or assembly process, or a product or service. The purpose of the FMEA is to take actions to eliminate or reduce failures, starting with the highest-priority ones.

Is FMEA a legal document?

It is important for the FMEA team to understand that FMEAs are legal documents that support the demonstration of due care in product development. As legal documents, they are subject to subpoena for legal proceedings.


The AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook is the new automotive industry reference manual for Failure Mode and Effects Analysis, it is to be used as a guide to assist suppliers in the development of Design FMEA, Process FMEA, and Supplemental FMEA for Monitoring and System Response.

Who developed FMEA?

The Ford Motor Company introduced FMEA to the automotive industry for safety and regulatory consideration after the Pinto affair. Ford applied the same approach to processes (PFMEA) to consider potential process induced failures prior to launching production.

Who used FMEA first?

the US Military
The first widely known use of FMEAs was by the US Military at the end of the 1940s. The military developed the technique to reduce sources of variation and corresponding potential failures in the production of munitions – and it proved a highly effective tool.
