Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
FMEA stands for Failure Modes and Effects Analysis – this is a step-by-step approach to determine the failures or errors that occur in the manufacturing, design or assembly processes.
APT can complete a FMEA on the hydraulic circuit of your equipment or machine – we can facilitate the process, or simply provide expert staff to participate in the assessment process – or both if you prefer.
The FMEA is used at the design stage in order to prevent failures – and to determine the outcome of any component failure. An FMEA should be started at the design stage of a project.
APT will provide a detailed and concise report for any facilitated assessment, ready for review and audit. Reports will reference all applicable Australian Standards and Mine Design Guidelines (MDG’s), and will include assessment of all components included in the hydraulic circuit – the report will also include any recommendations, which can assist in creating machine documentation and training presentations.
Do you currently have the experienced staff required to facilitate and participate in this process? Do you have questions on what is required to complete this process? Contact APT today to see how can help you get the most out of this process.
Failure Modes and Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
FMECA is an extension of FMEA – FMEA determines the failure modes of a component and their effects, while Criticality Analysis ranks those failure modes in order of importance by considering the failure rate.
A FMECA on your hydraulic circuit will review each individual component in the circuit, and will then assess likely failure modes, determine the local effect and system effect of that failure; it will also consider any existing controls that are included in the hydraulic circuit. From this information, a risk type will be determined, as well as a likelihood and consequence – a residual risk level for that component failure will be determined.
As with the FMEA service provided – APT will produce a detailed report for all assessments that we facilitate
