FMEA used Throughout Food Industry to Improve Product Quality
Recent deaths and illnesses from contaminated foods are resulting in stricter guidelines and regulations in the Food Industry. Food safety is a must and is only achieved through reliable processes, equipment and people. Many reliability professionals are getting involved with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) reviews. HACCP is globally accepted and employs Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) structure to manage food safety issues. Reliability and Maintenance personnel can proactively assist in managing these changes by
- Participating in the development of process flow diagrams and the completion of hazard analysis’s
- Making sure maintenance plans for critical control points are complete and optimized.
- Making sure the process used to set up these plans are well documented, controlled and easily reported on.
- Using the Hazard Analysis to development continuous improvement plans for a specific area or piece of equipment.
