    I hope you would benifit from the following case-study:for example the case of household  lamp:
    component name:wiring
    failure mode:broken,frayed,frpm lamp to  plug
    cause of failure:fatique,heat,crelessness,childbite
    effect of failure on system:will not conduct current;may generate heat,blow breakers;or cause shock.
    correction of problem:Use of wire suitable for long life in exterme environment anticipated.
    comments:Dangerous;warning on instructions
    (reference:profit through quality/Analyst:J.A.White)
    I hope this would help,I’m looking for further technical case -studies in a japaneese quality magazin,thanks.               MN

    Failure Mode:  Company still paying ASO fees and Insurance premiums for employees that no longer work for the company
    Failure Effect (how the above will affect us) paying premiums in error; paying claims in error; suppliers giving us false error reports; query results would be in error; former employee receives matching 401K contribution and should not; too much pension service credit.
    Potential Causes: each of the failure effects have several causes…I’ll focus this example on just one of them…paying premiums in error.  Managers not properly trained in how to fill out a termination form; data entry operator enters incomplete/incorrect data into the system; HR did not complete the action/reason codes correctly; our termination form does not accommodate multiple transactions; “special” severence benefits promised and should not have been; incorrect corrections to job record
    So you begin to see as you go right on the FMEA form the form expands as you add more and more issues.
    Existing Controls:  what is in place now to “catch” these potential causes?  Again on the previous causes we could answer variable and inadequate, manual, none
    And then the rest of the columns like recommended actions and responsibility is up for your team to decide for each point. If you would like to post your e-mail address, I would be happy to e-mail you an example of a completed FMEA for one of my current projects.
    Best!  Suzanne

    Don’t waste your valuable time conducting a FMEA. A good brainstorming session with the project team, followed by nominal group technique, then Cause and Effect Matrix will do the same job in a fraction of the time. Controversial, but true.

    Suzanne:
    I would appreciate a copy of one of your FMEA case studies. We had a similar situation where our company failed to identify “old terminated” employees and therefore continued to pay insurance prermiums, etc…
    Please email a copy of the FMEA sample you mention in your email I am very interested in seeing how you applied FMEA in this area.
    Best Regards,

    Other FMEA applications include machinary FMEA, System FMEa . Machinary FMEA is a very importnat part of TPM imnplementation also.

    K,
    To reach Suzanne, you must respond directly to her post:
    https://www.isixsigma.com/forum/showmessage.asp?messageID=7601
    It is 2 years old, and she has not contributed recently.  I suggest you email your request to the Board Adminstrators and see if they can contact her for you.
    Also, you can search the site (see the box in the Top Right) for “Suzanne” and possibly find her email address.
    Good Luck!

    Hallo K Tang
      Following  is an example of a simplified FMEA for  a seat belt installation process at an automobile assembly plant:
                                   S.        PoO          PoD           RPN
    Wrong color S.Belt   5          4               3               60
    S.B.Bolt Not Tighten. 9         2               8               144
    Trim Cover Clip Misali. 2       3             4                  24
    As you can see,three potential failure modes have been identified.Failure mode number two has an RPN of 144,and there is therefore the highest priority for process improvement.
        Hope this would help you,regards.      Suzanne
