FMEA topics covered in the reference guide include:
- History and types
- Who creates them; when and why
- Traditional vs Six Sigma FMEA
- Identify input variables for analysis
- Enter failure modes and effects
- Score severity
- Enter causes and score occurrences
- List controls
- Plan and verify improvements
