See full text

A method for performing failure mode and effects analysis throughout the product life cycle. The method comprises receiving incident data from a requestor. The incident data includes a requestor product and a requestor fault mode. A shared failure mode and effects analysis database is accessed and searched for an existing entry that includes the incident data. The contents of the existing entry are transmitted to the requestor in response to locating an existing entry.
