ROSA, Leandro Cantorski da  and  GARRAFA, Marcos. Failure mode and effect analysis in the optimization of production factors in the agro cultivation: subprocess harvest of canola. Gest. Prod. [online]. 2009, vol.16, n.1, pp.63-73. ISSN 0104-530X.

The agricultural sector has been facing an intense process of transformation and modernization. Nevertheless, it can still be considered underdeveloped if compared to other economic segments, regarding the utilization of new technologies and administrative techniques, resulting problems that deserve consideration. This Article presents a methodology to prioritize problems and their related effects to determine preventive measures, aiming at improving processes of canola cultivation, using the FMEA technique focusing on harvest. The agricultural sector has some particular techniques, which is the reason for some adjustments in order to analyze this type of process. The application was illustrated through an experiment in a plantation of canola at the farm-school of sociedade educacional três de maio (SETREM). The determination of priorities of potential problems was done comparatively through RPN (risk priority number) and a graphic method.

Keywords : FMEA; Canola plantation; Harvest of canola; Failures prioritization.
