A FMECA report consists of system description, assumptions, conclusions and recommendations, corrective actions to be tracked and FMECA matrix which may be a spreadsheet, worksheet or database.


FMEA is a bottom-up, inductive analytical method which may be performed at either the functional or piece-part level. FMECA extends FMEA by including criticality analysis, which is used to chart the probability of failure modes against the severity of their consequences. The result highlights failure modes with relatively high probability and severity of consequences, allowing remedial effort to be directed where it will produce the greatest value. FMECA tends to be preferred over FMEA in space and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) military applications, while various forms of FMEA predominate in other industries.

A Thorough Needs Analysis

Once your goals are defined and engineering design information is collected, our logisticians will perform a thorough analysis and develop required reports, which may include:

      • Failure Modes, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
      • Maintainability Analysis and MTTR Predictions
      • Failure Reporting, Analysis and Corrective Action System (FRACAS)
      • Manpower Requirements Analysis Human Engineering Analysis MRA / HEA
      • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
      • Provisioning Technical Documentation
      • Hazard Tracking and Risk Resolution
      • Reliability Analysis and MTBF Predictions
      • Level of Repair Analysis (LORA)
      • Reliability Centered Maintenance Analysis (RCMA)
      • Logistics Support Analysis (LSA)
      • System Safety Analysis (SSA)
      • Logistics Support Analysis Record (LSAR)
      • Training Needs Analysis and Assessment
