1. An FMEA is primarily considered a problem-solving tool.
    Incorrect. FMEA is primarily a reliability planning tool which considers the effects and causes of potential failure modes on the function or purpose of the part or service.
  2. A DFMEA evaluates the potential failure modes and causes associated with the manufacturing of a product
    Answer:  Incorrect.  A DFMEA evaluates the potential failure modes and causes associated with the design of a product
  3. The use of data to verify the relationships between root causes and effects is one of the critical-to-success factors in the FMEA process.
    Answer:  Correct
  4. FMEA teams will find themselves spending more time than usual early on in the planning process, which will usually lead to delayed product introductions.
    Answer:  Incorrect.  By spending the extra time on an FMEA early on in the planning process, there should be less time spent later debugging the product or service at its introduction to the market.
  5. At the DFMEA level, it is usually recommended to study each subsystem separately, and each component separately.
    Answer: Correct
  6. The objectives of a PFMEA include minimizing production process – based failure effects on the system but usually not minimizing  variation around the design specs due to the process. Answer: Incorrect.  The objectives of a PFMEA usually include both.
  7. When doing both a DFMEA and a PFMEA, it is important to keep the same team members throughout both FMEA processes.
    Answer: Incorrect.  It is typical for some (but not all) of the team members, and maybe even the team leader, to change for the PFMEA to reflect the emphasis on the process, rather than the design, of the part or service.
  8. Besides prioritizing improvement efforts, FMEA can also provide a formal record of reliability and safety analysis.
    Answer: Correct
