Quality Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP S/4HANA enables you to ensure the quality of your products, processes, and services right from the start.

Focus of this blog post is the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis used in Product Development.

Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) is a method for detecting and preventing possible failures (failure modes) in products and processes already in an early stage of the development, i.e., in the design phase.
This method is used in quality management to prevent and avoid failures. In Six Sigma projects, FMEA can be used to identify weak points or issues.
We recommend that you use the FMEA when planning new products and processes. The method enables you to use a risk analysis to derive quality-specific actions that ensure a high quality level.
During FMEA you describe and evaluate your product or process for potential failures or weak points in a structured way. Based on the results you can implement changes to the design, revaluate and thus prevent failures and avoid failure costs in production or claims by customers.

FMEA is well known in SAP S/4HANA.
With the 2202 release, FMEA is also available for Quality Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud!
The new SAP Fiori App Manage FMEAs enables you to execute the FMEA method using a Graphical Framework.

The app provides a flexible worklist from which you can open an FMEA that is displayed as the focus element with its higher-level and lower-level elements. On the details page of this focus FMEA, you can access detailed information about the FMEA as well as various graphical views to show the related elements, the functions and failure modes.

Watch the video below in which my manager Yannick Peterschmitt, Head of SAP S/4HANA Enablement, SAP S/4HANA Product Success interviews me about this amazing release highlight. Here I would like to show you our new way of processing the FMEA in SAP S/4HANA Cloud using our new Fiori app.
