FMEA-Based Design for Remanufacture Using Automotive-Remanufacturer Data 2001-01-0308

This paper describes the development of a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) modified to support design for remanufacture. The results of the waste-stream analysis of an automotive remanufacturer were used for this FMEA. The remanufacturer waste stream was assessed to determine factors that impede the reuse of parts. The use of the modified FMEA allows consideration of factors such as ease of detection and repair of failure, in conjunction with contribution to the waste stream of each failure mode, to develop priorities in design for remanufacture.
