Subject: Availability of Canned FRACA Software Packages
What has been RAC Forum members experience regarding canned FRACA software packages; in particular, what is available, how user friendly are they, cost, etc. The application is for a small growing manufacturing company just getting started and seeing the need for a FRACA system.

Floyd, I would suggest taking a serious look at FMEA-Pro from Dyadem, they have the capability in one software tool to perform FRACAS, FMEA/FMECA and Maintainability, the software program is fully customizable to be built anyway you wish, reports can be generated in PDF, HTML or Word with real time graphing, plus its a fraction of the cost of a FRACAS system. Definately worth the look.

It has been my 15+ years of experience that canned s/w packages for FMEA and FRACAS are not cost-effective. I have been using standard MS office tools and have no intention of changing.
