agree  Darin Fitzpatrick: The German abbreviation is also FMEA. "EMEA" is a typo, or else it's "Europe, Middle East & Africa"

agree  David Retallick: Darin, there is more to this than meets the eye! In Germany, "failure" is translated (falsely misunderstood) as "Fehler". Hence the re-translation as "error mode and effect analysis" = EMEA. For this reason German FMEA's are extremely long!
