  • Identify causes and frequency
  • Identify current controls and detection level
  • Develop multiple actions associated with this failure mode
    • Assign owners and due dates

Making FEMA Simple, Powerful and Manageable

FMEA benefits are best realized when it is employed across a process, product or problem set. But disjointed data capture and reporting such as multiple spreadsheets, report formats, and unmanaged access can cause the process to break down. The SBS FMEA database solves these and other challenges by:

  • Providing a simple, effective way of managing a range of FMEA’s across many groups, projects, and locations
  • Enabling an effective and documented means for meeting the needs for global application of risk management required in the latest quality, environmental and safety management standards
  • Increasing visibility of the FMEA and its recommendations through concise reporting, tailored to the level and expertise of user classes/types through standard FMEA formats
  • Ability to easily track FMEA status and then the actions required to address the FMEA outputs (i.e. risk management, process improvement, etc.)
  • Accountability via embedded project management functions such as electronic management approval signatures, easy-to-identify delinquencies/stalled actions, “single-click” email reports and data export
