Failure risk reprioritization and improvement strategy selection are two inseparable parts in FMEAmethodology. Nevertheless, the previous studies on the new research opportunities provide veryscanty discussions on the latter part. This paper presents an initial survey to classify literature related to improvement strategy selection methodology inFMEA. Systematic literature review using various reference databases is undertaken. Driven by new paradigms and recent trends on managing business operation,many studies have been dedicated to advance improvement strategy selection based on FMEA.

Based on some observable gaps from the previous references, new research roadmaps in selecting improvement efforts are presented.
