Hazard Analysis vs. FMECA – Differences and Commonalities
The terms "Hazard and Risk Analysis" and "Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)" are often used synonymously.
However, there are significant differences in both methodologies and their strengths can be combined to ensure a safe and efficacious system design. The presentation will explain both methodologies and will show ways how these tools can be used to complement each other. Additionally the differences and limitations of both methods will be illustrated and the appropriateness during the different product development phases will be discussed.
