I’ve created a light hearted PFMEA about brewing beer.

I did not spend too much time on the completeness of the content as my objective was to convey the ideology of FMEA, plus it’s targeted at people who are new to the subject.

I must also add that its content is light hearted and I am no expert in brewing beer!  

Basic assumptions:

  • All equipment is present  prior to the step that is being performed
  • Prior steps have been performed correctly
  • All failure scenarios are a best guess
