The 7 steps of FMEA

The 7 steps of FMEA1. Planning and Preparation

Scope definition objectives

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.

1. Project plan and project definition - the 5 T‘s

The 5 T‘s can be found in the project plan and project minutes:

  • Team
  • Time
  • Tool
  • InTent
  • Task
e1ns.actions: Integrated collaboration.e1ns.actions: Integrated collaboration.

A solution to manage projects, tasks, and actions in all phases of the product development process.


2. Identifiying relevant Lessons Learned

The reuse of FMEAs is strongly recommended. Instead of using copies of old or invalid data PLATO e1ns uses a template management process with versioning, systematic updates and automatic information of users.

e1ns.templates: Lessons Learned.e1ns.templates: Lessons Learned.

Creates templates adapted to the needs of system analysis and risk management, releases them in a regulated procedure and publishes them specifically for the user community.


3. Definition and selection of the scope

Block diagrams for DFMEA and Process flow diagrams for PFMEA are recommended sources to visualize the scope.

e1ns.aspects: Model-based Engineering.e1ns.aspects: Model-based Engineering.

e1ns.aspects is a central tool for the development, describtion, and monitoring of a system in the product development phases using methods from e1ns.methods.

e1ns.flow: Modeling and visualizing processes.e1ns.flow: Modeling and visualizing processes.

Your central tool in the process planning phase.
