Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis
Introduction to Construction Quality Planning, Applying APQP to construction manufacturing, published by the Construction Innovation Hub in December 2019, suggests that Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA): ‘…is used during the product development phase. Any design features identified as having the possibility of causing major, hazardous or catastrophic failures are either removed from the product or have prevention mechanisms built in to reduce their failure rate. Key outputs from DFMEA are feature classifications for the product and identification of Key Characteristics (KCs). In the construction sector, such key characteristics may comprise of interfacing features between modules, cladding, substructures and foundations. Critical Items (CIs) may be on products which are critical to the structural integrity of the buildings for example beams or columns.’
