Annotations for Power of Deduction : Failure Modes and Effects Analysis for Design

Book News
A consultant engineer with a background in friction materials and devices, Anleitner explains that failure mode and effects analysis is a formal process or study in which a subject is examined in detail and risk is assessed. It can be used to help inform the design of components, whole products, or processes. He discusses the right way to use it, defining the project, understanding function, deducing failure modes, effects and severity, causes and occurrences, controls and detection, assessing and addressing risk, and using the process constructively.
