Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase: FMEA
Can anybody spell this out for me?
It's in the middle of list of specs and plans:
Prozeßablaufpläne, Kontrollpläne,
Prüfpläne, Spezifikationen, FMEA´s, Prozeß- und Prüfmittelfähigkeitsuntersuchungen
(I don't need a translation of the rest of the list; but I would like to know what FMEA stands for)
Thank you
analphabetic
Fehlermodus- und Effektanalyse - FMEA
Explanation:
Maybe you want to stick with the original abbreviation since it seems to me to be the abbreviation of an English term in the first place: 'Failure Mode and Effect Analysis', but if you don't, you've got a German version now.
Cheerio,
Dierk
