Criticality Assessment Models for Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis Using Fuzzy Logic

  title={Criticality Assessment Models for Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis Using Fuzzy Logic},
  author={Heeralal Gargama and Sanjay Kumar Chaturvedi},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Reliability},
Traditional Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) has shown its effectiveness in defining, identifying, and eliminating known and/or potential failures or problems in products, process, designs, and services to help ensure the safety and reliability of systems applied in a wide range of industries. However, its approach to prioritize failure modes through a crisp risk priority number (RPN) has been highly controversial. This paper proposes two models for prioritizing failures modes… CONTINUE READING
