A Systematized FMEA Practice for Magnet Relays


Article Preview

The Design Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) are generally applied to risk management of New Product Development (NPD) through standardization of potential failure modes and effect-ranking of rating criterion with failure modes. Typical 1 to 10 of effect-ranking are widely weighed the priority of classification, that framing effects and status quo senses might cause decision trap happening thus. The FMEA follows considerable indexes which are including Severity, Occurrence and Detection, and need be associated with difference between every two failures individually. However, we suspect that a more systematic construction of the analysis by which failure modes belong is necessary in order to make intellectual progress in this area. Two ways of such differentiation and construction are improvable effect-ranking and systematized indexes; here we resolve for attributes of failures with classification, maturity and experiance of indexes according to an existing rule. In Severity model, the larger differentiation is achieved by separating indexes to the classification of the Law & Regulation, Function and Cosmetic. Occurrence model has its characteristic a reliable ranking indexwhich assists decisionmakers to manage their venture. This is the model most closely associate with product maturity by grouping indexes to the new, extend and series product. Detection model offers a special perspective on cost; here the connections concerned with phase occasion of the review, verification and validation. Such differentiations will be proposed and mapped with the Life Cycle Profile (LCP) to systematize FMEA. Meanwhile, a more reasonable Risk Priority Number (RPN) with the new weighting rule will be worked out for effect-ranking and management system will be integrated systematiclly
