Once your goals are defined and the engineering design information is collected, Dayton T. Brown, Inc.’s logisticians will perform a thorough needs analysis and develop required reports, which may include:
Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a bottom-up, inductive analytical method, which may be performed at either the functional or piece-part level. FMECA extends FMEA by including a criticality analysis, which is used to chart the probability of failure modes against the severity of their consequences.
A FMECA report consists of the system description, assumptions, conclusions and recommendations, corrective actions to be tracked, and the FMECA matrix, which may be a spreadsheet, worksheet, or database. The results highlight failure modes with a relatively high probability and severity of consequences – allowing remedial effort to be directed where it will produce the greatest value.
FMECA tends to be preferred over FMEA in space and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) military applications, while various forms of FMEA dominate in other industries. DTB’s logistics professionals can support both types of analysis.
