After the completion of the design stage of a new research facility at its Institute of Shock Physics, the Imperial College London identified the following as important lessons: 1. Engineering design was enhanced through failure mode avoidance, which allowed the design to include countermeasures for identified failure modes. 2. FMEA was effective in identifying specific information behind potential failure modes, probable causes, and countermeasure options. Visualisation techniques that supporte...
