FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis) is a systematic process for identifying potential failure modes, their causes, and the actions to be taken to reduce or correct failures. And our FMEA Excel Template is a risk analysis tool that identifies the points where a process may fail.

Once a high risk is identified, action must be taken. Also, FMEA Excel Template can be applied to both manufacturing and nonmanufacturing processes. Additionally, it can be performed at the part, assembly, or system level!

FMEA Features

Benefits of using FMEA Excel Template:

  • Improvement in the dependability and quality of the product/process.
  • Boosting customer satisfaction.
  • Identification and elimination of potential product/process failure modes as early as possible.
  • Prioritization of product/process flaws.

FMEA Excel Template Features:

Basically, the template has 4 sections. Let’s take a quick look at each one.

Sections of FMEA

1. Settings:

Firstly, a total of 100 rows are available for you to enter Process Names and Action Owner Names. Also, you can change the interval between RPNs (Risk Priority Numbers) if necessary in this FMEA Excel Template.


Note: To determine risk intervals, use the RPN Settings.


Secondly, after choosing the process, you need to fill in the remaining columns from left to right.

Possible Cause

Those columns titled “Before” indicate the status before the action, while those titled “After” indicate the status after the action.


Moreover, you can see the number of columns assigned to this FMEA Excel Template in the Actions column after selecting Severity, Occurrence and Detect points.

3. Action List

Thirdly, once you’ve filled out Process, Mode, Effect and Cause, the drop-down menu adjusts itself based on the left side of the input. After that, you can write the action for the failure.

Befor and After Action

Furthermore, you can assign the Owner to the Action, and the Status will appear once you fill in Start, Due Date, and Finish. Based on the CML (Counter Measure Level) of the action, you can determine its power.

4. Dashboard

Finally, to review your FMEA’s visual analysis, select the filters in the dashboard to change the charts.


Note: If you want this template in Google Sheets, you can download our FMEA Google Sheets Template.

    How can we change the settings?

    • Someka

      Hi Tone,

      Yes, you can change the settings of the processes. You should only write the settings you want to in the relevant row.

  2. Ella Brand

    We have to add more than 70 processes to this workbook. What is the row limit? Thank you

    • Someka

      Hi Ella,

      You can enter 100 processes into Settings. In the FMEA sheet, you can enter 500 rows. Hope this helps!

  3. Zara G

    I want to add a new sheet to this. Please advice.

    • Someka

      Hi Zara! To add new sheets to the template, you should first unhide the sheets! Let us show you:
      For Windows: Go to File > Options > Advanced, and under Display options for this workbook, and make sure the Show sheet tabs checkbox is selected.
      unhide the sheets

      After displaying your sheet tabs, you can add/delete new sheets by clicking on the plus (+) sign.

      Hope this helps!
