Improve corporate-wide FMEA collaboration with SEP web portal

ReliaSoft SEP is a web portal that provides convenient mobile access and quick at-a-glance summaries for analyses performed in ReliaSoft applications. Implementing the portal together with ReliaSoft XFMEA offers a powerful and flexible solution for corporate-wide access to FMEAs.


  • FMEA teams can utilize full-featured software that facilitates the analysis process along with the convenient mobile access provided by the portal.
  • For managers with multiple teams working on different FMEAs, the web portal offers a quick and convenient way to stay up-to-date on potential risks, assigned actions and whether analyses will be completed on time.
  • Colleagues throughout the organization can access the valuable lessons learned for use in other activities, such as designing test plans, troubleshooting for customer support and future product development.

FMEA teams use both desktop and web to facilitate the analysis

Teams performing FMEAs can utilize all of the analysis capabilities in XFMEA along with some additional features enabled by SEP.

For example:

  • XFMEA can send alerts when an assigned action is created, modified or ready to be reviewed. With SEP, you can also trigger alerts based on the action due date (e.g., send an alert 1 week before the action is due, then send a reminder every day until the action is complete).
  • Utilizing FRACAS data when performing FMEAs saves time and leads to more effective risk assessment. If your organization is using XFRACAS for failure reporting and team-based problem resolution, SEP makes it easy to view the field failure data for a particular part or failure mode.
  • If SEP is configured for “Remote ReliaSoft,” users can launch XFMEA on a remote server without having to install and update software on each client computer. (There are additional hardware and license requirements for this feature.)

Managers use the web portal to track progress and sign off on FMEA versions

When an FMEA is ready to review or approve, the analysis team can copy or e-mail a link to an at-a-glance summary that the manager can view in any web-enabled device.

You can easily track key indicators, such as:
  • The number of failure modes and the percentage fully analyzed
  • The top failure modes
  • The status of assigned actions, with % complete

If the team is using the change log tracking feature in XFMEA, the manager can also use the web portal to sign off on the controlled analysis version.

Stakeholders use SEP to access lessons learned

For colleagues throughout your organization, SEP provides multiple ways to share the latest analysis and lessons learned with no desktop applications installed.

The web portal shows the latest FMEA, custom dashboards and finalized report documents that are saved with the analysis project.

Users can also run saved queries for any FMEA or group of FMEAs, to get customized output such as actions that are not complete or failure modes with high risk.

Implementing SEP together with other ReliaSoft applications provides convenient, mobile access to key reliability analysis results and helps to facilitate cooperation across different areas of expertise. In addition to the FMEA solution described here, you can also use SEP to share selected results from Weibull analyses, reliability growth testing, system simulations and other reliability studies performed in Weibull++BlockSim, or Lambda Predict.
