An acronym for “failure mode and effects analysis,” the FMEA framework is used to identify roadblocks that may develop down the line and build a corrective action plan through strategies that may help circumvent them. Teams of all stripes may choose to undergo FMEA to anticipate potential problems and solidify the best solutions to mitigate adverse effects.

The five steps of the FMEA process are as follows:

1. Analyze possible failures of the system or product you are testing. List the effects that would follow these failures.

2. Assess the severity of the failures and their effects.

3. Determine the likelihood of each failure’s occurrence.

4. Nail down how easy or difficult it will be for team members to detect a failure in progress.

5. Assign each potential failure a risk priority number (RPN) and start brainstorming solutions in order or priority, using the information you’ve gathered.

To complete the FMEA process, you’ll want to assemble a competent, diverse team. You’ll need team members who are well-acquainted with all the different aspects of your project to catch possible problems on all sides.

Once you have gathered your team, proceed through the five steps of the FMEA—analyzing potential failures, assessing effects, determining the likelihoods of failures, establishing the likelihoods of detection, and assigning RPNs. Use FigJam’s free FMEA analysis example to keep track of your work and share it far and wide.
