Linking component function to component failure for use in conceptual design failure analysis
Keywords and Phrases
Elemental function-failure design method (EFDM); Failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA)
"To improve on this process of failure analysis, the Elemental Function-Failure Design Method (EFDM) is presented here as an activity that has been developed to allow failure analysis to be performed earlier in the process of designing new products and be guided by historically archived failure knowledge."--Abstract, page iv.
