Automating Mechanical FMEA Using Functional Models

Nigel Hughes, Enxi Chou, Chris Price and Mark Lee, University of Wales

This paper considers the applicatoin of functional modelling to the automated production of FMEAs for mechanical systems. We consider how a functional model can be generated algorithmically from the geometric and assembly data already present for a device in a CAD/CAM system. We present the functional model used for representing the mechnical system, and propose reasoning techniques that can be applied to the model in order to produce an FMEA.
