DFMEA and FTA Applied to Complex Hybrid and Fuel Cell Systems 2011-01-0512
One of the keys to a good reliable design is evaluating potential and past issues, ascertaining and then mitigating the risk that past and future issues will potentially occur. This is even more important with the automobile designs of today and for those in the future, specifically the hybrid and fuel cell vehicle.
DFMEA and FTA are tools that aid in the understanding of complex design risks, from the system level down to the component level. This session will look at different case studies (from simple to complex) and the strategies used to understand systemic failure modes using both DFMEA and FTA.
