The German trade journal „FMEA konkret“ (published in magazine "FMEA konkret" 2/2016) provides assistance in choosing the right FMEA software. PLATO takes the first place in 7 out of 9 evaluation criteria, which makes PLATO the test winner (98% of expected functions fulfilled). The PLATO technology not only fulfills most of the expected functions, it also provides the best implemented functions for the FMEA creation – no matter if it’s the creation of complex or simple, product- or process FMEAs. Further, the following unique features where emphasized:
- 100% web based
- SysML editor enables model-based operations
- Variant management via delta-FMEA
- Expansion of systems management to the stakeholders
The authors Julian Häußer and Martin Werdich analyzed a variety of FMEA software solutions regarding the ”most relevant criteria and functions, that a state of the art FMEA software must fulfill”.
