To date, there is no mandatory normative requirement or binding rules from any industry association for the implementation of a Reverse FMEA. However, many OEMs (BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company, Geely Group, General Motors, VW Group, etc.) now require their suppliers to perform R-FMEA. As a result, and due to the proven effectiveness of this method, companies have started to adopt R-FMEA into their existing processes and are developing their own approaches and rules.
There is no specific approach for implementation, but in general most companies define their own methodology in their FMEA standards. Following an R-FMEA checklist is recommended.
However, some approaches are also listed in customer-specific requirements, for example in Ford's CSR agreements.
