Object documentation Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)

Definition

Methodology used to identify potential errors early on in development and prevent them using suitable measures.

The following fields from FMEA are available in cProjects:

        Severity: Severity of the consequences of errors

        Detection: Probability of the detection of errors

        Occurrence: Probability of the occurrence of errors

Here you can enter values between 1 (no risk) and 10 (high risk). The product of these values is the risk priority number, on which the actual risk calculation is based. The higher the risk priority number, the more important it is to correct the cause of the error(s).
