Manufacturers are always competing for the greater fit of the functions offered by the product and their quality, with the price of the product compared to the products of other competitors, in other words, the higher value of the product. One of the best methodologies to ensure that the product is valuable to the customer is to implement the value engineering process. Value engineering process is a regular method with the aim of increasing the value of products and projects. One of the primary and important phases in the implementation of value engineering is the function analysis phase. In this research, by improving the FMEA, a framework for performing the phase of product function analysis in the FMEA context is provided. An important advantage of this framework is that while implementing a step-by-step and systematic process of function analysis, it reveals the risk of function failure, which is one of the hidden factors affecting the value of product functions, and calculates the true value of functions and identifies low value functions for introducing to the value engineering creativity phase. Using this framework can also reduce the time and cost of product development and its introduction to the market and get ahead of competitors. The proposed FMEA framework developed in this study can be used in all industries related to product design and manufacturing.
