Design Risk Analysis (DRA)
Design Risk Analysis (DRA) is a technique used to identify the potential failure modes in a new product. These failure modes could be related to (but not limited to) product performance, life, reliability, durability, cost, manufacturability and maintainability. Essentially, DRA is addressing the question - "What can potentially go wrong with the intended use of the product?". DRA should be carried out before the design is finalized. It is a live document and should be updated throughout the product's life cycle.
