No room for error

Mike Lane, CEO of Lofton Label, explains how FMEA analysis helps understand what could go wrong with a labeling project – and how those problems can be avoided.

Imagine that thousands of product packages need to be recalled because of label inaccuracies. Forget that the logo colors are spot on, or that the perfect adhesive was used. Somewhere in the labeling process, there was an error that could impact user safety. And that error will cost money and brand credibility.

Both product manufacturers and consumers, not to mention government regulators, rely on labelers to get it all right – from initial design and development work, through delivery of the product to the final purchaser. Unfortunately, there are many opportunities to get it wrong. That’s why applying a rigorous process like Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is so critical.

Order out of chaos

In simple terms, FMEA is a systematic way to understand what can go wrong – in order to make sure it doesn’t. It’s not a new approach; in fact, it began in the military in the late 1940s, and the process has demonstrated staying power. Today, there are a variety of apps that use current FMEA methodology.
