Abstract

Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) has long been used to assess risks for any given organization or process, but has not been used as much in the field of Corporate real estate construction and management. Corporate real estate, architecture, engineering and construction (REAEC) is involved behind the scenes in making a professional workplace functional and comfortable for workers, so their risks directly affect these employees. Risk management teams can shift their focus to REAEC by putting together small teams of people familiar with Six Sigma and use FMEA to highlight risks and rank them in order of priority or severity.
