Assess potential failures with failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA)

Stricter homologation and environmental regulations and increasing product complexity have put automotive manufacturers at greater risk for warranty issues and recalls than ever before.

Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a critical preventive tool for effectively assessing risk. Making sure quality is addressed before the finished product rolls off the production line helps manufacturers avoid changes in later production stages, saving money and helping produce high-quality results.

Download this white paper to learn how manufacturers can reduce risks and costs by implementing a closed-loop quality solution that includes a collaborative quality management system.

Using digital quality management to effectively perform FMEA

In the past, quality management systems (QMS) have been disjointed and disconnected from other domains. Taking a holistic approach to quality management best practices can break down these silos and create alignment across the enterprise.

Potential failures need to be quantified and evaluated for all key processes and decisions in the automotive industry, especially for its suppliers. A closed-loop quality management system can help support that FMEA-based risk assessments are carried out and managed efficiently. Large amounts of information must be analyzed and shared when new products are introduced.

A comprehensive QMS, native in a PLM platform, can move all the manual work and paper that goes into quality management to a common digital user experience.

A new way forward with a smarter manufacturing environment

Quality management system (QMS) software, part of a comprehensive smart manufacturing approach, mitigates these risks with a closed-loop system that synchronize product design, manufacturing design, quality and the supply chain to safeguard compliance and product integrity.
