How FMEA can improve the reliability of your product


An FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis) procedure is a risk assessment method that helps to pinpoint critical design choices of your product. In this webinar we will explain how to apply this method to a PBA (Printed Board Assembly). A differentiation is made between failures at the level of the PCB, component failures and failures at the interconnection level. A list of common failure mechanisms is documented in a database which serves as a guide through the risk assessment process. For each of the potential malfunctions, the critical parameters that influence the occurrence of the failure are listed. By gaining a better understanding of the effect of these parameters, the effect of certain design choices on the final product performance will become more clear. Some practical examples will be shown to improve your knowledge on the methodology as well as on some of the potentially occurring (and avoidable) errors.
