Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA)

FMEA is an ad hoc risk analysis tool wherein all project-related risks are listed and reviewed in terms of their severity, probability of occurrence and probability of detection. When assigning arbitrary numbers to these parameters, the product resulting from them gives a risk prioritization number that in turn allows the classification of risk. Early risk mitigating actions will lower this number and therefore minimize the associated risk.
