FMEA Failure Mode and Effects Analysis
Systematic method for the prevention of failures
FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis): analysis of effects, for short
Finite element method (FEM)
The finite element method is a numerical procedure for the approximate solution of, in particular, elliptical, partial differential equations with peripheral conditions. It is frequently applied in engineering for simulation calculation purposes. It makes it possible to simulate new geometries before the model is actually produced. The temperature or pressure loading, for example, can be simulated.
