About Failure Analysis

  • Failure analysis is the process of collecting and analyzing data to determine the cause of a failure, often with the goal of determining corrective actions. It is an important discipline in many branches of manufacturing industry, such as the electronics industry, where it is a vital tool used in the development of new products and for the improvement of existing products. NDT or nondestructive testing methods (such as computed tomography scanning) are valuable because the failed products are unaffected by analysis.
  • Product structure – product’s logical representation in configuration management and control program
