The study is conducted in a Pot manufacturing industry. The productivity of an industry can be improved by giving importance to the maintenance. Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) is a powerful preventive method for the risk management, which aims in eliminating potential failures associated with each component of machines in an industry. FMEA is a component level analysis. From the study the failure modes with high risk are found out by calculating the risk priority number (RPN).
