Abstract: Reliability is an important criterion affecting the automobile buying decision of customers. One of the most important components in automobiles is the cables ensuring the electricity current. Even the smallest breakdowns in these cables create crucial problems. Because of that, it is aimed to work with zero error in the production phase. In this study, the objective is the determination of possible and present errors in the cutting phase of electric cables and avoidance from these errors before they occur. In this regard, failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) methodology is used, which is an analysis done for prevention and identification of all possible error types. Preventions found by FMEA have been implemented and high risk priority numbers (RPNs) are reduced in a cable cutting process. The study shows that significant improvement in possible errors can be ensured with the use of FMEA.
