Abstract: The main subject of this paper is the Process Failure Mode Effect Analysis (PFMEA), and how this methodology was used to identify risk, priority rank potential problems, and create actions to minimize or eliminate risk resulting in a highly reliable and successful box build assembly process. PFMEA is the methodology for analyzing potential reliability problems early in the manufacturing and assembly cycle where it is easier to take actions to overcome these issues, thereby enhancing reliability. This paper will include a description of the product, assembly challenges, initial process, resulting process, and benefits achieved. The reader will benefit from a better understanding of the PFMEA and how it enhances the success of a Box Build assembly.
