Improving the effectiveness of FMEA analysis in automotive – a case study. (English) Zbl 1405.90056
Summary: Many industries, for example automotive, have well defined product development process definitions and risk evaluation methods. The FMEA (failure mode and effects analysis) is a first line risk analysis method in design, which has been implemented in development and production since decades. Although the first applications were focusing on mechanical and electrical design and functionalities, today, software components are implemented in many modern vehicle systems. However, standards or industry specific associations do not specify any “best practice” how to design the interactions of multiple entities in one model. This case study focuses on modelling interconnections and on the improvement of the FMEA modelling process in the automotive. Selecting and grouping software components for the analysis is discussed, but software architect design patterns are excluded from the study.
