Abstract

One of the most frequently used methods of quality management in manufacturing and industrial enterprises is the FMEA method. The FMEA (i.e. Failure mode and effects analysis) is a method of systematic prevention of defects. It allows to specify actions to minimize the risk of defects' occurrence. The FMEA is most often used wherever products with a high degree of complexity are manufactured or when the production process is a multi-stage process or when in the production process many people take part. Due to its universal character it is used in mass production, unit production, especially industrial production. The literature states that this method can be widely used in the metallurgical industry. While conducting the FMEA analysis, the knowledge and experience of employees working in higher positions, technologists, employees of quality departments, but also directly production employees can be used, but also it can be treated as a motivation tool for them. The purpose of the paper was to analyze quality of steel bars which are produced by one of the steelwork in Poland. The FMEA method was used for this analysis. The cause and effect are presented for each production problem. After calculating the risk priority number, corrective actions were proposed. After the introduction of these corrective actions, the risk priority number was re-calculated to see if these actions have caused the intended effect.
