Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is methodology for analyzing potential reliability problems early in the development cycle, where it is easier to take actions to overcome these issues & thereby enhancing reliability through design. A process or a design should be analyzed first before it is implemented and also before operating a machine the failure modes and effect must be analyzed critically. This paper deals with design failure mode & effect analysis ,for development of semiautomatic averaging fixture for engine cylinder block. Different issues associated with engine block averaging fixture are pointed out with there effective failure modes. Prioritization is done on the basis of risk priority numbers ,also most potential risks are identified & minimized. This results in major cost savings along with prestige? towards customer end in terms of quality features. The FMEA is a proactive approach to solve potential failure modes.
