Failure Analysis Consulting

An assembly line goes down.  What failed?  Why did it fail?  How can it be fixed?

A product fails to perform as anticipated.  Could it have been prevented?  Should it have been prevented?  Will it happen again?

Failure analysis consultants ask questions like these as they begin a detailed data collection and analysis process called failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA).  This process helps them assess design, processes, products and services for possible points of failure and determine why the failure occurred.  The problem-solving methods used in failure analysis to identify the root cause of problems or events, know as root cause analysis (RCA), are the same whether you are an engineer experiencing a failure in the field or an attorney developing a case for a client.

Our failure analysis consultants perform analyses your staff may not have the experience to perform.  They can also conduct an independent review of your internal failure analysis to make sure it is complete.  Our teams work in a range of industries, including automotive, biomedical, manufacturing, construction, consumer products and electronics.

The problems we solve save you time and money.  The knowledge we help you gain via failure analysis assessments and root cause analysis helps identify appropriate corrective actions.

With over 600 experts in engineering and technical areas, we can connect you with the right failure analysis expert for your situation.  Call us today.
