FMEA software Skill FMEA Pro

The world leader in FMEA software


Action plans management


From CAD drawing to FMEA


FMEA on Job Instruction



Design FMEA – Process FMEA


Skill FMEA Pro is the world leader in FMEA software (PFMEA and DFMEA) since 1992! Both modules can be synchronized or used independently.


FMEA and control plan consistency


The FMEA software “Skill FMEA Pro” allows a perfect consistency between the FMEA and the control plan. No variances are possible because the information comes from the same database. A global and instantaneous view of the process parameters or product characteristics is available for the user to check the monitoring, in particular those of the special features SCC.

Special class characteristics


Special class characteristics are managed at design and process FMEA, synchronized with control plans and in perfect consistency with the flow chart and the job instruction that are created automatically. Special characteristics (CS) are controlled at all stages and influencing factors are coming directly from the FMEA and are in compliance with monitoring.

Life Cycle


The design FMEA is based initially on the functional requirements expected by the customer. The FMEA software “Skill FMEA Pro” lists the life cycle situations of the product. The functions expected by the client and its specifications are grouped together in each life situation. Functional criteria, or requirements, define the level of demand to be achieved. Some requirements may be identified as special. This set is the functional description.


Automatic capitalization and generics


The FMEA software “Skill FMEA Pro” offers automatic capitalization features. The specific FMEAs are created from generic FMEAs. A generic FMEA capitalizes, under control, on all the knowledge added in its specific FMEAs. The specific FMEA are created from generic FMEAs; every enrichment of a specific FMEA is capitalized in the generic FMEA. Knowledge is gradually built upon by accumulating experience from all the studies.

Dynamic retex

In order to accelerate input, increase its reliability and assist with it, our FMEA software uses a knowledge network, so that the response to the following stage is always given, based on experience previously capitalized by the system. An example for a given operation is only to show the possible modes, and for a given mode only to show the possible causes… The dynamic retex must give the user the next stage, without having to view or search from among the thousands of terms in catalogues. The precise wording is unimportant: some ten terms are shown, and the choice is therefore instantaneous.

FMEA audit


Our FMEA software is validated by more than 1,500 customer installations worldwide. Each audit was successful. The precision and the overlapping of the datas bring you exactness in your study and a perfect coherence over all your documents generated. No more discrepancies during your FMEA audit due to inconsistent information. Consistency is also ensured between design and process FMEA, control plans, flow charts, job instructions and special class characteristics. Skill FMEA Pro generate a complete audit file.


AIAG VDA alignment


Standard supported by our FMEA software “Skill FMEA Pro” are: AIAG / VDA 1st edition, AIAG 4th edition, VDA 6, ISO 9001, IATF 16949, IAQG.
Built from our Franco-German partnership with Böhme und Weihs Company, we are ahead of the integration of this AIAG VDA alignment.

Main changes are:
– 6 steps: scope definition, Structure analysis, Function analysis, Failure analysis, Risk analysis, Optimization
– AIAG and VDA assessment alignment
– Elimination of the Risk Priority Number (RPN)
– Apparition of the action priority (AP)

FMEA traceability


Traceability (historization) is a key element of Skill FMEA Pro and is found at all levels (FMEA traceability, traceability of monitoring plans). An extreme archiving, required in aeronautics or medical, guarantees the total preservation of data.

FMEA action plans


The FMEA software “Skill FMEA Pro” includes a standard FMEA action plan module. For each cause, several actions can be put in place to reduce the criticality values through a reduction of the frequency or detection. The portfolio of actions is centralized for the entire company, enabling everyone to access directly all the actions to be accomplished for all the FMEA files managed by Skill FMEA Pro. Sending reminder e-mail is possible with this module. FMEA / actions plans consistency is perfect.


Reverse FMEA


Our FMEA software includes “reverse FMEA” functions. This allows, at the production line, to zoom in on an operation and check the consistency between the field and the FMEA. The reverse FMEA is a major tool for continuous improvement. For example, for a “shavings presence” customer return, the software will present all the operations concerned in the FMEA, the monitoring plan and the instructions to the station.

Multi-languages and Multi-plants


Our FMEA software is, of course, available in several languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Russian, Hungarian, Turkish, Czech, Portuguese, and Polish). The translation option enables FMEAs to be “brought to life” through dynamic updating of the central synchronized glossaries, and therefore to capitalize on all newly translated terms. In multi-plants configuration, each user shares and synchronize the knowledge. The capitalization is for the entire group.

FMEA transversalization


The FMEA transverse audit module instantly diagnose and homogenize all the design and manufacturing processes of the quality system. In the event of a client non-compliance it is important to make a transversal analysis of the same problems in hundreds of studies, or to be familiar with all the actions undertaken in response to a given cause. Transversalize your FMEA in one click.


FMEA in the shopfloor


To reduce ppm, our approach is to use the FMEA in the shopfloor and not only as a record to respond to an audit. For this, The FMEA software “Skill FMEA Pro” offers the additional module Skill Production Reader used directly by the operators. During his work phase, he accesses the monitored data, the risks identified in the FMEA, the controls to make at the station, on perfectly updated data, without any paper, and always with the right version…

4.0. entreprise


“Skill Infra Convert” module scans CAD drawing, automatically extracts all dimensions and their tolerances. They are stamped, numbered and integrated into the quality control plan of the FMEA in 1 click. The job instruction is in full synchronization with the product drawing, an essential element for the implementation of Enterprise 4.0.
