Identifying failure modes and their effects is critical to software failure mode and effects analysis and it largely depends on the analysts’ experience and the skill. This book develops a series of reading techniques based on common and prioritized failure modes in software requirements, software design, coding, and usability in order to makes the benefits of software failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) readily accessible to general software practitioners, particularly in small teams and resource-constrained organizations. After a general introduction it offers an overview of software FMEA and discusses software review procedures and software reading techniques. Subsequent chapters present the basic ideas behind failure-modes-based reading techniques and examine the use of these techniques for software requirements, software design, software coding, software usability, and software testing. Covering the entire creation process, and including checklists and examples, it provides an easy introduction to the topic for professionals in software engineering and quality assurance.

The recognition that all well-managed companies are interested in preventing or at least minimizing risk in their operations is the concept of risk management analysis. This pocket guide explores the process of evaluation of risk by utilizing one of the core methodologies available: the failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA). The intent in this “Pocket FMEA” is to provide the reader with a booklet that makes the FMEA concept easy to understand and provide some guidelines as to why FMEA is used in so many industries with positive results. The booklet is not a complete reference on FMEA, but rather a summary guide for anyone who wants some fast information regarding failures and how to deal with them. It covers risk, reliability and FMEA, prerequisites of FMEA, what an FMEA is, robustness, the FMEA form and rankings, types of FMEA, and much more.

Although Reliability Engineering can trace its roots back to World War II, its application to medical devices is relatively recent, and its treatment in the published literature has been quite limited. With the medical device industry among the fastest growing segments of the US economy, it is vital that the engineering, biomedical, manufacturing, and design communities have up-to-date information on current developments, tools, and techniques. Medical Device Reliability and Associated Areas fills this need with broad yet detailed coverage of the field. It addresses a variety of topics related - directly and indirectly - to reliability, including human error in health care systems and software quality assurance. With emphasis on concepts rather than mathematical rigor, a multitude of examples, exercises, tables, and references, this is one resource that everyone connected to the medical device industry must have.
