What is ‘Failure Mode, Effect and Criticality Analysis’ ?

Is a Structured analysis process for:

  • Identification of equipment/system functions
  • Identification of functional failures
  • Identification of Failure Modes
  • Identification of the effects of the failure
  • Assessing criticality of the failure


  • Elimination of undesirable failure modes during design
  • Input to RCM Analysis
  • Input to asset condition risk assessment
