FMEA is set of guiding principle for identifying and prioritizing the probable failures or defects. It is focused on preventing problems, enhancing safety, and rising customer satisfaction. This Project was carried out to determine the risk associated with defects in the injection moulding process using FMEA method and reduce the defects to ensure that the same kind of defects should not arise in the future. Thereby reducing the total cost of production and increasing customer fulfilment.
