FAILURE MODE AND EFFECT ANALYSIS al Affiliation) Construction of a Failure Mode and Effect Analysis The concept of Failure Mode and Effect Analysis is basically a technique that was invented to facilitate failure analysis. The Pioneers of this technique were a group of reliability engineers in the early 1950’s who were driven by a desire to assess challenges that may arise from military operational systems. This research will focus on construction of an FMEA for the preparation of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in hospital X (http: //asq. org, n.d). The FMEA is constructed in the excel sheet; the first sheet indicates the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis of the process of preparing Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Hospital X.
The second sheet of in excel indicates the rating scales for severity, occurrence as well as detection of the failures. Note: Magnetic Resonance Imaging is an imperative tool that is used in hospitals for diagnosis of various diseases majorly three examination of body tissues, organs and other parts of the body by provision of three dimensional images of these body parts (http: //www. sickkids. ca, n.d). However, this process usually entails use of very strong magnetic fields that may pull of metallic objects within the surrounding, especially those that can be attracted by the magnetic fields (http: //www. sickkids. ca, n.d).
