In many high-tech sectors, the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) methodology is now one of the main used tools to identify and reduce risks during product design and manufacturing development. However, practitioners and the literature in engineering design highlight many difficulties to implement and efficiently generate FMEA. By using C-K design theory, this research proposes to revisit the theoretical framework of the FMEA to explain why FMEA cannot be reduced to problem solving. Then, we propose to extend the initial FMEA methodology.
