Failure Mode and Effect Analyses (FMEAs) have been carried out and developed further for the last 60 years. The benefit of FMEAs is so significant that its application has become a standard in modern product development. It is even compulsory in some of themajor industries. Underlyingmethods and available software tools have been steadily improved and adapted to a wide ariety of applications. But this support still does not assure completeness nor does it provide adequate efficiency. The approach presented in this paper enhances the procedure and software support of conventional FMEAs. The “enhanced Failure Mode and Effects Analysis”(eFMEA) provides improved ergonomics and increased efficiency while guaranteeing the completeness of all required examinations at any time.

Keywords: FMEA, Multiple-Domain Matrix, product quality, product safety.
