Description:

Fully updated with enhanced methods to reflect the latest ISO 9000 and ISO/TS 16949 standards, The Basics of FMEA, 2nd Editionsystematically assists developers and engineers in achieving quality and cost efficiency. It fully defines Failure Mode and Effect Analysis and provides a definitive ten step method for its implementation illustrated by an extended case study. The book demonstrates how to involve all stakeholders in the process so as to identify and preemptively eliminate those product deficiencies that originate in production. With a long track record of success in the military and the automotive industry, FMEA is now being applied to production concerns across a variety of…
