Xfmea: FMEA and FMECA Software Tool

Expert support for all types of FMEA and FMECATM

Version 9 is available now! If you've already implemented Version 8, please READ THIS FIRST.
If you're new to Synthesis, we invite you to download a free demo today.

Click to see a picture of the software interface...ReliaSoft’s Xfmea software tool facilitates data management and reporting for all types of Failure Modes and Effects Analysis — FMEA — and Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis — FMECA. The software provides predefined settings to fit the major industry standards (such as AIAG, SAE J1739 and MIL-STD-1629A) and also provides extensive customization options to fit your particular analysis and reporting needs.

Software Features

Xfmea provides centralized data storage to make it easy for multiple users to cooperate on FMEA projects. The software offers a flexible and powerful set of tools to help you:

  • Record and manage data for current failure mode and effects analyses (FMEAs).
  • Find and reuse relevant information from existing FMEAs.
  • Evaluate risk via RPN or Criticality Analysis.
  • Track the completion of recommended actions.
  • Present the FMEA data via reports, queries and charts.
  • Integrate the FMEA with related analyses, such as Process Flow Diagrams, Control Plans and Test Plans.

Synthesis Integration

With integration into the Synthesis Platform, analyses are now stored in a centralized database that supports simultaneous access by multiple users and shares relevant reliability information between Synthesis-enabled software tools. For enterprise-level repositories, both Microsoft SQL Server® and Oracle® are supported.

Available Training

ReliaSoft offers a five-day training seminar series that is composed of two sessions. D470A provides an overview of the fundamentals of effective FMEAs with hands-on practice using Xfmea for data management and reporting. D4780B uses case study examples to allow attendees to practice FMEA facilitation and application skills.

Applications and Benefits

Some of the potential applications and benefits of performing FMEA and related activities with ReliaSoft's Xfmea software include the ability to:

  • Proactively consider potential failures, prioritize issues based on risk and then initiate improvements early in development when modifications tend to have the greatest impact for the lowest cost.
  • Create a keyword-searchable knowledge base of reliability-related information for your designs, which can contribute to the development of test plans, control plans, future design efforts and other activities.
    • The software makes it easy to find and reuse information from existing analyses or predefined libraries.
  • Establish consistency throughout the organization's FMEA process and make it easy for multiple users to cooperate on the analyses.
  • Utilize charts, reports, automated e-mails and other features to use the analysis information in ways that will effectively support decision-making and make sure that corrective actions are implemented.
