Failure Mode and Effects Analysis - (FMEA) is an analytical methodology used to ensure that potential issues are addressed and resolved during product and process development. Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) and Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA) jointly published a FMEA handbook to be used by automotive suppliers to assist them in development of FMEA. Тhe handbook newly published in June 2019, provides a systematic framework for implementing technical risk on the production process, as well as assessment to prevent failure. The new 7-step approach to performing FMEA gives the form a better look, better organized and described, defined and with better structured separate items and functions, which will make it easier for users to work with FMEA. One of the important changes is replacement of Risk Priority Number (RPN) with the new Action Priority (AP). This paper explores the benefits of the implementation of AP with special focus on prioritization of resources in risk reduction on the most dangerous risks. The introduction of AP avoids the issues that organizations and teams have had, where for every RPN action, for example RPN>100, regardless of the combination of whether something is serious or not, had the same weight and demand for execution. With the new combination methodology, which prioritizes high-Severity risks, then frequency of Occurrence, and then Detection, it will be easier for teams to know which actions to focus their resources and time on.
