Failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) is an effective technique for preventing the potential problems and actions needed in eradicating the cause of error in oil industries. On the other hand, oil producing companies play a critical role in the oil industry in Iran as a developing country, out of which Sepahan Oil Company has a significant contribution. The aim of this research is to show how FMEA could be applied to improve the quality of products at Sepahan Oil Co. For this purpose, the four litre production line of the company has been selected for investigation. The findings implied that the application of FMEA has reduced the scraps from 50000 to 5000 ppm and has resulted in a 0.92% decrease of the oil waste.
Key words: FMEA, Iran, Sepahan Oil Company, canning, waste, scrap.
