What is an FMEA checklist template?

The systematic process of a Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) determines potential errors in processes, products or certain systems in a company. An FMEA template is used by product development or process optimization teams to determine the Risk Priority Number (RPN).

This article addresses the following issues:

1. Goals and Advantages of implementing FMEAs

2. Powerful FMEA template tool for optimizing FMEA forms

3 Advantages of implementing FMEAs

FMEA procedures can have a variety of uses in companies. They can be implemented to improve processes, products or systems. The 3 essential advantages and goals of implementing an FMEA template are:

1. Ensuring Safety

The implementation of an FMEA template process is in itself a great success factor. By assigning an FMEA Team which analyzes certain processes, products or systems of a company, you gain insight into the actual functionality of said factors. A substantial part of this analysis should be a risk assessment. Once a cause or impact for a failure mechanism is detected, a root cause analysis should be applied to establish the underlying problem. The first goal of an FMEA template is therefore, to determine, how to improve through precise analysis. This safety-oriented procedure ensures high-quality productivity in your company.

2. Becoming a high-quality brand

An in-depth analysis is of great importance when trying to improve complex new or established processes or products. But it is crucial to not only work with the information you have gained perspective on but moreover work with it, by assigning corrective action. You should bare in mind that there cannot be one implemented change to better a process in the long-run, therefore your FMEA team should establish a plan for regular checks and corrections to ensure a stable quality which customers and clients expect and deserve. Therefore, the second goal of FMEA is to provide long-term quality by repeating processes and constantly questioning their suitability.

3. Saving Time & Costs

A thorough analysis of internal processes makes us rethink a companys' strategy and helps to accomplish daily business faster and more effectively. Saving time means saving costs of daily efforts but it also minimizes the risk of costs caused by failure mechanisms in a specific product as well as possible warranty costs. Another factor to considere here, is your reputation as a high-performance company in general. Always being on schedule ensures your status as a trust-worthy business which values its clients time and money. Average performance does not bring about recommendations, therefore the third goal of an FMEA-procedure is to save time and costs to satisfy clients and put emphasis on a convincing reputation.
