Abstract

A manufacturer in the aerospace industry used process failure mode and effects analysis to determine what was causing failures in the aging treatment of aluminum alloys. The effects were prioritized according to their seriousness by quantifying them against severity ranking criteria. From there, a risk priority number helped the manufacturer narrow down potential solutions and pinpoint process improvements.
