The Relyence Knowledge Bank provides a database to store FMEA information from past analyses. This key capability allows you to create baseline, core, or foundation FMEAs and ensures that your lessons learned from past analyses are retained and carried through all your ongoing projects. You have access to all your historical data in an easily retrievable format – meaning you can complete your analyses tasks more efficiently than ever before.
Relyence FMEA Knowledge Banks provide a powerful way to automate your FMEA through reusing the knowledge gained from all your prior and current FMEA projects, a core tenet of Foundation FMEAs. With one click, add any FMEA information from your FMEA to a Knowledge Bank – FMEA Functions, Failure Modes, Effects, Actions, and even full components or systems. As you perform your FMEAs, use the flexible search feature to mine your Knowledge Banks for information pertinent to your analyses. Another single click, and that prior knowledge is retrieved into your current analysis. Never lose any of your critical lessons learned! Plus, rest assured that you are employing a consistent and trackable methodology to your FMEA tasks.
Keep Your FMEAs In Sync
Not only does the Relyence FMEA Knowledge Bank capability enable you to store and retrieve FMEA data to automate your FMEA activities, it also provides the ability to keep all your analyses organized and in sync. You can update the information in your Knowledge Banks at any time – by directly editing the Knowledge Banks or updating from a FMEA Worksheet. You can then optionally push updates out to all your FMEAs tied to Knowledge Banks. The ability to maintain consistency in your FMEAs is one of the biggest benefits of this Relyence-only feature!
Relyence FMEA Knowledge Banks incorporate a capable searching mechanism to allow you to mine your FMEA data for information that is applicable to your analysis. Knowledge Bank searching is flexible – enabling you to search for all levels of FMEA data. You can search for Failure Modes, Effects, Actions, and even full component FMEA data. This quick and complete access to your library of FMEA information makes your FMEA tasks more automated than ever before.
Build Up Your FMEA Knowledge Banks
Relyence FMEA Knowledge Banks grow over time as you continue to perform and complete your failure analyses. You can add to your Knowledge Banks on an ongoing basis, or choose to add a completed analysis all at once. Either way, the advantage of Knowledge Banks is the fact that your vital FMEA lessons learned are never lost. Within teams, across departments, or even for an individual analyst, you can be sure that everyone has access to historical data so duplicate work and inefficiency is eliminated.
Knowledge Banks and Foundation FMEAs
Importantly, the unique and innovative Relyence FMEA Knowledge Bank feature enables you to support the use of Foundation FMEAs. Foundation FMEAs, which can also be known as core, template, or master FMEAs, are a database to store FMEA information from past analyses. This ensures that lessons learned are retained and carried through to all your ongoing projects.
If Foundation FMEAs are required for your organization, using Relyence FMEA and Knowledge Banks can meet your compliance requirements. Or, if you are like many organizations and recognize the vast benefits of incorporating Foundation FMEAs as part of your FMEA process, Relyence FMEA easily supports your efforts.
