PFMEA - Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis
PFMEA - Anticipate and Prevent Potential Issues
The use of a PFMEA (Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) form is a tool that associates risk levels to each step of a process. PFMEA is intended to prevent defects from occurring by anticipating potential issues and allowing you to implement control measures in advance.
The risk level is typically quantified by calculating a Risk Priority Number (RPN) for each process step. There are many different ranking scales in use. An example can be found at DMAIC TOOLS
The benefit of Timer Pro’s PFMEA is that since it is done in Excel you can customize any number of forms to meet your specific needs. The fact that the forms are in Excel means that you can work completely independently of any application. In addition the PFMEA forms management in Timer Pro uses the same revision control capabilities that are standard in Timer Pro Work instructions so you can automatically maintain revisions of your PFMEAs.
