Investigate the root cause of your equipment failure
When vital components and structures fail, determining the root cause can be a challenge for manufacturers and operators. Product failure occurs due to a number of reasons including design flaws, manufacturing or material defects, and wear and tear. Misuse or abuse during transportation, on-site storage and chemical cleaning before commissioning and operation may also lead to product failure.
About Failure Analysis
Failure analysis is a comprehensive investigation to determine failure mechanisms and root causes in the event of a breakdown through scientific and engineering practical methodology. The root cause analysis procedure involves collecting and analysing data, developing appropriate corrective and/or preventive action, presenting the data clearly and generating a practical recommendation.
Importance of Failure Analysis
Failure analysis detects the root cause of the failure mechanism and recommends preventive measures to avoid repeat occurrences. Regardless of whether you are a manufacturer or an operator, failures that contribute to downtime can affect your business operations and profitability. In worst-case scenarios, failures may even pose a risk to employees, the public and the environment, possibly resulting in reputational damage and lawsuits.

Business Benefits of Failure Analysis
- Ensure availability and safety – through qualified inspections using modern inspection technology.
- Minimise risk – by identifying quality problems early on to reduce the risk of time-consuming and expensive rework as well as legal liabilities that lead to reputational damage.
- Benefit from an expert partnership – providing experience in failure analysis to support your projects.
- Draw upon global support – with TÜV SÜD’s strong international and regional presence, providing a high level of knowledge in most markets, backed up by local expertise.
- Protect your reputation – with technical support in legal disputes (including court cases) and identification of root causes of problems in product quality cases.
We strongly recommend that you undertake failure analysis, to determining the mechanism(s) and root cause(s) of the failure and also to take preventive measures to prevent recurrence of the failure.
A comprehensive Failure Analysis session with TÜV SÜD will help answer the questions and challenges you have on determining the cause of failures, enabling you to take steps to modify or redesign the product to prevent future failures.
