Development of an expert-based fault and modification management method within the engineering design process – FAMOS

The goal of the project was to design an expert-based fault management methodology that ensures the simple recording of faults using a structured storage of knowledge regarding faults.

This makes it possible to locate this knowledge in a targeted way, develop creative measures, and draw on existing fault management processes. It also permanently relieves company staff of routine tasks.
