Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a procedure by which each potential failure mode in a system is examined, its effects determined and its severity classified. FMEA Worksheet supports the process of managing the risk associated with product or process failures. In this paper, use is made of the observed values of the failure indicators namely, the Occurrence, Severity, Detection, and Risk Priority Number (RPN) in developing an FMEA Worksheet in a Brewery to bring about a considerable level of failure mitigation in a process production company. The methodology involves the identification of potential failure modes and their respective root causes, determination of the severity, occurrence, and detection, and calculation of the RPN. The RPN values show the component unit with the highest failure potential. Then, following the developed FMEA Worksheet, recommended remedial actions are taken. This presents the resulting Worksheet as a veritable tool for failure mitigation as desired.
