Opcenter Quality Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) efficiently manages cause and effect analysis to achieve advanced product quality planning and reduced warranty claims and costs.

Organize complex designs and processes for easy navigation
Opcenter Quality FMEA makes it easy to organize complex designs and processes in a tree structure for sorting data at all hierarchies and levels. The software creates a systematic view of the correlation between different components within the systems and subsystems.

Adhere to quality standards
Opcenter Quality FMEA enables you to perform risk assessments by following best practices and directions from several industries' standards, including evaluating the risk priority number (RPN) or the action priority (AP) level to identify priorities and support the decision-making process. An integrated quality action management module assists you in coordinating and controlling corrective and improvement actions.

Manage FMEA throughout the product lifecycle
The solution allows you to organize people and tasks around the FMEA process in a project, assess and reduce identified risks using action tracking and alert mechanisms, and then use FMEA results for control plan definition and to validate the process. 

Apply project experience
You can collect FMEA data in a relational, comprehensive knowledge database and apply project experience to new tasks. These capabilities enable you to shorten the development process cycle while adhering to quality output and project deadlines.

Integrate FMEA activities
The software module can be fully integrated with other Opcenter Quality software modules, including those that handle advanced product quality planning (APQP), flow charts, control plans, statistical process control (SPC), and concern and complaint management (CCM).
