This paper considers the applicatoin of functional modelling to the automated production of FMEAs for mechanical systems. We consider how a functional model can be generated algorithmically from the geometric and assembly data already present for a device in a CAD/CAM system. We present the functional model used for representing the mechnical system, and propose reasoning techniques that can be applied to the model in order to produce an FMEA.
