APIS is not only market leader in Germany - there are
more than 1.000 customers from all over the world. Support of
several languages (incl. Chinese, Japanese,Korean) and support of
"Simultaneous Engineering", which lets members of a risk analysis
team work independently on a common set of data, makes
international, distributed team work a breeze. APIS IQ-Software
have been in development since 1992. It reflects both customer needs
from real life and new and updated standards (AIAG, VDA). Speaking
of standards - APIS IQ-Software stores the data redundancy-free - so
updating a VDA form sheet also updates the AIAG form sheet - you can
also generate new forms with only a few clicks. http://www.apis.de/en/trial-version.

RAM Commander FMECA module is suitable for both hardware and
functional approaches to FMECA, and fully complies with MIL-STD-1629
A, commercial standards, and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
requirements. RAM Commander FMECA module makes the FMEA process easy
and visible: the product tree and the corresponding to each item
sequence of Failure Modes => Next Higher Effects => End Effects are
totally visible in the same window.
Formerly a separate package, Process and Design FMEA is now fully
integrated in RAM Commander. This module performs Process/Design
potential Failure Mode and Effects Analysis.
Process/Design FMEA Features
Extensive use of the FMECA Libraries facilitates the process even
more and contributes to the accuracy of the performed analyses and
reports. You can perform both the FMEA and FMECA calculating failure
mode ratios, conditional probabilities and item criticality numbers.
Compliant with AIAG and QS-9000 PFMEA
• Supports the concurrent updating of FMEA documents
• Compliant with safety and hazard analysis standards
• Assures isolation and elimination of all critical failure modes &
• Facilitates processing of experts' occurrence and detection
• Decision Making support for Corrective Actions
• Embedded drawing tool for process/part mapping
• Multiple analysis levels (Sub-FMEAs)
• Corrective actions evaluation by Feasibility, Cost, Duration, Risk
• Data transfer from FMECA
• Automatically build FTA from FMEA
PLATO SCIO FMEA -
Failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) is a preventative method used to
prevent failures. Possible errors in products and processes are to be
detected early and minimized or eliminated by taking suitable action.
Complaint handling and development costs are reduced in this manner, and
potential losses for the user of the product are avoided.
PLATO SCIO-FMEA is used for products and production processes. Primary
applications include automotive, aviation, medical technology,
electronics, plant and mechanical engineering, services and the food,
pharmaceuticals and chemical industries.
VDA, QS 9000, ISO/TS 16949, MPG and HACCP require risk analyses to be
performed. It is required as a PPAP document for the „Production Part
Approval Process“ release process.
The FAO/WHO HACCP Standard (ALINORM 97/13A, Annex II) requires risk
analyses to be performed and risk reduction action to be taken and
documented. It is the basis for legal regulations and food safety

Le normative QS 9000 richiedono l'applicazione di
tecniche FMEA ai prodotti ed ai processi. FMEA, precedentemente
utilizzata in settori specifici (aerospaziale, nucleare), è ora sempre
più diffusa nel settore automobilistico.
FMEA permette di organizzare ed analizzare cause ed effetti dei guasti,
distinte per i vari sottosistemi. Ai guasti vengono assegnati indici di
probabilità (di accadimento) P, gravità G e rilevabilità R, che
definiscono un indice di priorità di rischio (IPR) da 1 a 1000. Un
sistema di gestione verifica l'esecuzione e l'efficacia delle azioni
correttive pianificate per la riduzione di questo indice. Apposite macro
permettono di preparare rapporti e presentazioni conformi ai formati VDA,
AIAG, BS e QS-9000. FIAT in preparazione.

Software for Hospitals
Krouwer Consulting has been developing an
integrated fault tree/FMECA application to help hospitals identify risks
and propose mitigations. A fault tree is a top down cause and effect
diagram that is useful in identifying risk. A FMECA (Failure Mode
Effects and Criticality Analysis) allows one to propose mitigations for
the risks identified in the fault tree. These tools are commonly used in
engineering and are also described in the ISO document, 14197:

PathMaker is a software to run management projects such as FMEA: It does
not only allow to create the well-known FMEA form from a template
which may be re-designed by the user. It
further also to plan the creation of FMEAs and
act upon any findings.
Sabaton FMEA is a flexible and easy-to-use FMEA tool, and yet it
provides advanced features. In Sabaton, four issues have been given
particular focus: (1) Fully user definable analysis set up. You may
select from a range of predefined analysis templates, and you can change
the analysis set up and save it as a new template, even in an ongoing
analysis. (2) Improve the analysis efficiency and quality, a.o. through
the supporting hierarchical break down of the system, the powerful
copy/paste features (including "paste special" and "paste external"), as
well as through various features keeping track of, and viewing the
analysis progress. (3) Old analyses provide basis for new, a.o. it is
easy to start with an earlier analysis as a basis, or to copy/paste from
earlier analyses. Further, by using predefined failure mode libraries
linked to the component type. (4) Efficient reporting through user
definable report templates. All reports can be saved in PDF format for
electronic distribution. Other export formats are also available.
Further, Sabaton is developed to support you conducting analyses
according to international standards such as ISO 9000, SAE J1739, SAE
ARP5580, IEC 60812, BS 5760-5 or MIL-STD 1629. Calculation of RPN-number
and other measures are available through fully user definable equations.
Criticality analysis is offered by use of criticality or risk matrix
with fully user definable matrix set up. Finally, all labels and other
text that on the analysis form may be edited, thus analysis reports can
be set up in different languages.
Further information about Sabaton FMEA, and a fully functional demo
version, is available at the Sydvest web-page;
DRM Technologies has developed a reliability and maintainability
modelling and documentation tool that can be used by tooling and
equipment design engineers, plant and other personnel during the
concept, design and build/install phases of the equipment life cycle.
eRAM NotesT allows the user to model and evaluate multiple R&M
characteristics early in the design phase that will direct the team in
pinpointing areas for design improvements. These design improvements can
result in R&M tradeoffs of increased reliability of components and/or
making the component more maintainable.
The heart of eRAM NotesT is its WEB based application, bridging the
communication gap between the tooling and equipment supplier, plant, and
engineering to ensure the documentation, reports and calculations are
standardized to add stability to the R&M process.
eRAM NotesT allows multiple users to access the same job file and review
failure modes, weak link analysis, component reliability data, life
cycle costs, MFMEA and other important elements affecting the downtime
of the equipment. This fourteen-module, single-point documentation
source standardizes the calculations for: MTBF, MTTR,
Availability, Reliability, Life Cycle Costing and Thermal Analysis.
MFMEA Module - Develops the Machinery FMEA used to identify past
corrective actions to remove failures from next design revisions.
