In addition to making it easier for suppliers to meet their customers’ needs during the FMEA development process, the handbook features major changes such as a new process for FMEA development – the 7-Step Approach – and a new chapter on Supplemental FMEA for Monitoring and System Response (FMEA-MSR). Additional important changes include the following:
- Totally revised Severity, Occurrence and Detection Tables.
