Failure of components is unavoidable, the job therefore is to predict them, prevent them where possible, plan for them, and build in the ability to overcome failures.

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis is a tool for facilitating the process of predicting failures, planning preventive measures, estimating the cost of the failure, and planning redundant systems or system responses to failures.

Basics of FMEA

Basics of FMEA
Dermott Mikulak Beauregard

Failure mode and effects analyses (FMEAs) can actually help prevent failures, defects, and errors, because FMEAs identify special causes of variation before they occur. This is why the automotive industry's QS-9000 standard requires their use. But FMEAs are a valuable tool for any industry in which defect prevention is important. The Basics of FMEA explains failure mode and effects analysis simply and concisely, discusses when to use FMEAs (e.g., during design, manufacturing, etc.) and shows how to perform FMEAs step-by-step.
