Identification of field failures

1. Dear, thank you for your sharing. Could you please tell me that, in chapter 9.3.2.1 j: of IATF16949:2016, "identification of potential field failures identified through risk analysis (such as FMEA)". What is the 'identification' of potential field identified?

Answer:
Identification of potential field failures represent potential points in the process where the process can fail, that means that the outcome of the process is not in line with the specifications. FMEA analysis, especially PFMEA analysis is one of the tools for such analysis. Failure of function, for example, can be the failure of the process of purchasing in quantity of purchased items (bought more than needed)

To find out more about FMEA please see our article:

2. How can do that for 'identification?
Answer:
Identification of failures can be done by lookin g at the process itself and reporting of failures. An example can be in production, where the process is monitor and every failure of process that is out of specification is recorded.
