Failure Modes and Effects
A failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) is normally conducted at a component level and subsequently at a system level for each new design. This is used to establish a failure effects list. For each part in the parts list, as detailed in the System Description, this list contains
Table 19.13 Typical failure effects list (partial).
the following entries: part no., description, possible failure mode, mitigation, failure probability given mitigation, inspection and service intervals, and risk. If all the UAS manuals refer to a common parts database, errors and duplication are avoided when constructing this list. Table 19.13 shows a short section from such a list.
