Abstract

This paper presents an adaptation of the FMEA as a risk management tool for embodiment design. The development of the approach and important decisions are described. By means of three dimensions, risks of not meeting specifications can be assessed and prioritized. Furthermore the method enhances the development and follow-up of mitigation measures. The method has been tested by product development teams of a university course. The field study identified the Specification Risk Analysis as a useful tool to mitigate potential deficiencies of a product architecture. Additionally, it was shown that the highly matured procedure of the FMEA can be adopted for various purposes and is not limited to quality issues.
