    Is anyone aware of standard ratings for severity, occourance & detection for use in IT?This thread has been moved to the IT/Software discussion forum. Please click here to continue the discussion.

    To answer succinctly, no. However, I would start with the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG.org) FMEA Manual, which does contain the rankings for automotive manufacturing, and do a little thinking about the parallels between manufacturing a product and doing whatever it is you do, whether it is developing software or providing IT services. It should be relatively simple to convert their Severity, Occurrence and Detection rankings into something you can use.

    You could try the following;SeverityHazardous without warningVery high severity ranking when a potential failure mode effects safe system operation without warning10Hazardous with warningVery high severity ranking when a potential failure mode affects safe system operation with warning9Very HighSystem inoperable with destructive failure without compromising safety8HighSystem inoperable with equipment damage7ModerateSystem inoperable with minor damage6LowSystem inoperable without damage5Very LowSystem operable with significant degradation of performance4MinorSystem operable with some degradation of performance3Very MinorSystem operable with minimal interference2NoneNo effect1ProbabilityPROBABILITY of Failure Failure ProbRankingVery High: Failure is almost inevitable>1 in 210 1 in 39High: Repeated failures1 in 88 1 in 207Moderate: Occasional failures1 in 806 1 in 4005 1 in 2,0004Low: Relatively few failures1 in 15,0003 1 in 150,0002Remote: Failure is unlikely

    Those FMEA rankings look good.  Have you used them on projects?This thread has been moved to the IT/Software discussion forum. Please click here to continue the discussion.

    I’ve been using Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG.organization) FMEA Manual also for Telcommunication purpose. It can be a start for yr application.

    First of all I’d want to know what type of FMEA you were wanting to conduct, system, design, process, or machinery/equipment.
    A good reference source is Stamatis, D.H. 1995. Failure Modes and Effects Analysis. Milwaukee, WI: ASQ Press.  It discusses system, design and process FMEAs and has a chapter on Computers: Harware and Software.
    The best reference source for equipment FMEAs is: Givens, Gary R. and Sroka, Kenneth J., 1996. Machinery Failure Modes and Effects Analysis Handbook. Ford Motor Company,

    The detection ranking tables should be based on FMEA third edition.
    it is obsolete
    please updated it

    This FMEA article is very good. It would fine if it explains by taking one example doing FMEA from Define phanse to Verify phase.

    there is very few example for system FMEA except for the IT industry,  is anyone has known any S-FMEA examples for manufacturing Process or product Development Processes? Please kindly tell me.

    SAE wrote an excellent guide on system, interface and detail FMEAs that shows the reader how to coordinate a complete design and development effort.  It is called ARP 5580.This thread has been moved to the IT/Software discussion forum. Please click here to continue the discussion.

    Hello,
    I’m new to the Forum, my first question is..
    does anybody has references for FMEA implemented in IT department inside health industry organisation? Is it applicable well or that should be changed to newer standards like ITIL, ISO-17799?
    some links: http://www.iso-17799.com, http://www.itil.co.uk, http://www.bsi-global.com, http://www.itsmf.com/bestpractice/sourcebp.asp
    Thank you and regards,

    biju – In process FMEA’s, first priority is given to reduction in Occurance ratings
    Severity Reduction requires Design chanes (heavy on resources and time consuming) and reducing detection rating is getting ito reactive mode.
    Hope this helps….

    At 50,000 feet, I agree with Nitin.  But in the real world, these things are dependent on what the actual risks are.  Sometimes a problem only becomes severe because you can’t detect it, and improving the detection is frequently very easy.  Other times you might not be able to affect the occurrence, and your only choice is to bite the bullet and do something to reduce the severity.
    These tools are only tools, we still need to apply a heavy dose of common sense to decide how to interpret them.

    What is the difference between Failure Mode, Failure Cause and Failure effect ?
    What is safety FMEA?

    This is a great pleasure to view this IT FMEA. Because till yesterday we were thinking how we can convert this FMEA (which is purely assigned to automobile industry) into IT industry and we had assigned resource to do this job. Now we have got the Severity, Occurrence and Detection details which is published in this site. Definitely this will be very much helpful to our organization.This thread has been moved to the IT/Software discussion forum. Please click here to continue the discussion.

    Presuming you are using a scale of 1 – 10: A low number of 1 means you will detect the failure virtually every time it occurs and you will have ample opportunity to prevent your customer from ever seeing the failure. A middle number of 5 means you will detect it about half the time; a high number of 10 means you will rarely detect the failure and you will deliver virtually all of them to your customer. Numbers in between reflect relatively similar risks/expectations.This thread has been moved to the IT/Software discussion forum. Please click here to continue the discussion.

    Just to point out that iso-17799.com is currently moving to http://www.17799central.com
     
    On the wider point for this standard, a new perhaps more relevant development is the publication of ISO 27001, which can actually be certified against (unlike ISO 17799).
     
    For information on this you could take a look here: http://17799-news.the-hamster.com/breaking-news-2.htm
     
    Hope this helps.

    FMEA is such a nice TECHNIQUE so i have decided to take my M.SC ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT THESIS in it.Please suggest me on in which category i should have to take thesis because application of FMEA is an many field,so please response will much better better if any one who already implemented that system in his/her organisation.Waiting for your good and early response

    FMEA Third Edition is latest for TS16949. It is not out of date . Perhaps you need to customised for your inductry to reflect your manufacturing . I ndid mine for lED manuf.

    I think the value for “probability” is less than or equal to 1. So, we should not the term probability. But, we can use the term “occurance chance” between 1-10 for FMEA analysis.This thread has been moved to the IT/Software discussion forum. Please click here to continue the discussion.

    Thanks for the links Yuri. Some of them have changed though:
    http://www.iso-17799.com has gone to http://www.27000.mobi because the standards has been renamed to ISO 27000
    http://www.itil.co.uk has gone to http://best-management-practice.com because ITIL has been devolved.
    These still seem to be the dominant standards/frameworks in the arena.

    Does anyone have an fmea template that they could forward to me that captures Occurance/Severity/Liklehood, I am now completing my Lean Green Belt Project.

    Does anyone disagree with the FMEA attack strategy below, and if so, why?
    First, try to eliminate the cause of the failure mode if possible.
    Second, reduce the occurrence of the cause.
    Third, and least desireable, is to try to reduce the severity of the effect.
    A combination of occurrence and severity reduction may be necessary, but still focus the solution strategy in the order listed above.
