Process failure mode and effects analysis was employed by an aerospace manufacturer at the design level to determine the risks associated with aluminum treatment processes. In using this method, the manufacturer was able to assign numerical risk indicators and prioritize work toward mitigating all risks for each stage of the process. The manufacturer identified the intake of raw material as its highest-risk activity overall.
