A successful FMEA activity helps identify potential failure modes based on experience with similar products and processes.

User interface

Explanation and features

The main features of the FMEA extension are:

  • Calculating Risikozahl Type based on such input data as the extent of damage, length of stay in the danger zone, probability of occurrence, and the possibility of avoiding the danger.
  • Painting colors based on calculated values in accordance with the next scale:
  • Supported work in modules


  • Works in Module
  • The cells are colored after 0.5 seconds delay due to technical reasons of Jazz. The color will not appear if your jazz is slow. We can fix it by increasing 0.5 seconds to 5 seconds.

Know Problems:

If an artifact in DNG Module is selected the color will now be showing. The reason for that is that IBM implemented rosa color for highlighted requirements. As soon as you deselect the requirement desired color appears. Reload will also make the color appear.

The gadget must be open at least once after the user started his Web browser's session.


This add-on is free of charge for customers who purchased the IBM Jazz solution via Softacus.
