Design Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (DFMEA)
 

Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) is a type of Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) that is carried out at the design stage. DFMEA investigates the ways that the design can fail in service, and the consequences of the failures. It includes investigating the possibility of the design being used in ways that were not intended and the effects of different environments.

The failure modes for a step ladder could include potential failure because a component could corrode and fail. They could also include a potential failure because the user's foot could slip on the treads.

 

Process improvement is included in the MiC Quality Primer in Statistics.
