The 7 Steps of FMEA

The 7 Steps of FMEA4. Identifing causes and effects and their relationships

Identifing causes and effects and their relationships

  • Identification of potential failures assigned to functions
  • Establishment of the failure chain
  • Visualization of failure relationship (nets)

PLATO e1ns is the web-based Product Innovation Platform for the optimal design of the product development process. 

Model-based, visual, consistent, agile, simple, scalable, and globally available.

The methodology of e1ns.architect combines function and failure analysis

Each function is checked for non-compliance, which leads to the creation of the failure net. During development and in case of complaints, the problem causes need to be identified, and it is possible to see which further problems could arise elsewhere as a consequence. The failure net automatically fills in the corresponding FMEA forms with failures, causes, and effects at all system levels. For potential failures, safety functions are defined and traceably linked.
