Conducting a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis in TestTrack

Helix ALM
Is your team currently conducting failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) work as part of the design process? FMEAs are a great way to identify and prioritize risk early in the product development cycle. This makes mitigation work less expensive and results in a safer and higher quality product. While you can do FMEAs with documents or spreadsheets, using TestTrack makes the process less time-consuming and more thorough. TestTrack also simplifies the mitigation process by allowing you to quickly see every work item and artifact impacted by any changes made to reduce or eliminate risky design elements. This video provides a high-level overview of conducting an FMEA, first using a simple spreadsheet and then with TestTrack. http://youtu.be/F0Kbzqlq_M0
