Who should be involved in an FMEA?

It is important to involve a diverse team of individuals in the Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) process, as different perspectives and expertise can help to identify a wider range of potential failure modes and corrective actions.

Ideally, the FMEA team should include representatives from a variety of functional areas, including design, engineering, manufacturing, quality, and maintenance. It may also be helpful to involve individuals with subject matter expertise in the specific product or process being analyzed. In addition, it is important to involve individuals who have a deep understanding of the product or process, such as those who work with it on a daily basis.

Overall, the FMEA team should be composed of individuals who have the knowledge, skills, and experience to effectively identify and evaluate potential failure modes and develop effective corrective actions.
