Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) Services
In today’s globalised world the provision of safe, compliant and quality products as well as efficient supply chain risk management, fundamentally rely on good process controls and information management. The Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) / Failure Mode Effect Critical Analysis (FMECA) methodologies identify the possible failure modes, their respective causes and the possible failure effect to enable corrective actions to be implemented.
What is FMEA?
Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Failure Mode Effect Critical Analysis (FMECA) are systematic, proactive method of evaluating a process to identify where and how it might fail and to assess the relative impact of different failures, in order to identify the parts of the process that are most in need of change.
Our Approach to FMEA
Bureau Veritas understands that the maximum value of a FMEA is to detect risks to system performance and safety and the costs of mitigating such risks is significantly lower if they are detected early, and therefore undertaking the study during the design stages is recommended.
Our engineers prepare for each workshop by gaining a detailed understanding of the operation of the system, and use a what if technique using a defined list of guidewords to help facilitate the session and ensure all potential risks are identified by the workshop team.
Why choose Bureau Veritas for FMEA?
We have extensive experience in delivering FMEA workshops for several blue chip organisations across the oil and gas, chemical, process and manufacturing industries. Our engineers have operational experience enabling us to understand the day to day issues, and offer a pragmatic approach to not only facilitating the workshop but ensuring corrective actions add value and reduce risk.
