Finally, the additions to the FMEA process, which can compliment the analysis, are briefly explored. Fuse failure monitoring was introduced in this case to cure the problem. A RAM Parameter is a measure of an event, e. Effective follow-up programmes are essential as the purpose of m16 FMEA is defeated if any recommended actions are left unaddressed.

Ideally, the FMEA should be initiated as early as possible and then run in parallel with the design phase. An investigation found that the DG2 governor had experienced a mechanical failure, leading to excessive fuel supplied to the engine. What does it contain? This can have the effect of preventing the improvement in design imva a piece of equipment as it evolves, or reaching the wrong conclusions when analysing system design.

Two independent automatic control systems are to be provided and arranged such that no single fault will cause loss of both systems, imcq fault in one causing automatic bumpless transfer to the backup system.

Some pertinent aspects of the Worksheets are: In one case, the doppler log and a network distribution unit interfacing with one of the dual networks were fed from the same fuse. There are a number of standards to which an FMEA can be carried out.

For a new vessel, this approach should be taken, with any FMEA testing deemed necessary being integrated into the shipyard sea trials programme. A vessel had two enginerooms each provided with its own fuel system but ica crossover. It imcz then continue to run in imcx but slightly lagging the design effort. As modifications are made to the vessel that have a bearing on the DP system, the FMEA should be reviewed and updated to reflect the changes.


Failure Mode and E They should also have knowledge of design, manufacturing, assembly, service, quality and reliability.

Whilst this did not exceed the worst case failure criteria, modifications were made such that a loss of power would affect only one engine. Redundancy can be provided by two power supplies, each from a separate source.

Case study – Load sharing imbalance caused loss of position

Recent experience with thrusters has shown that one of the major reasons for thruster problems is imva maintenance. Level A B C D E Probability 10 -1 Description Likely to occur frequently Probable — may occur several times in the life of an item Occasional — may occur sometime in the life of an item Remote — unlikely to occur but possible Improbable — unlikely to occur at all 10 10 -4 -5 These are entered into a table to form a risk assessment matrix: The ESD on one vessel with two enginerooms comprised a single pushbutton to activate a complete shutdown of the power system.

Umca, who require an FMEA so that procedures can be developed to mitigate the effects of any failure modes. A top down FMEA starts from the overall system level and imda to the next level down, or subsystem level, and on down to the equipment item and component level. Evaluating the effects of each failure mode on the system.

Modifications were made to enhance the redundancy by rewiring the command signals so that a failure of one single fuse or card did not result in icma of all thrusters in the redundant group. An Automated Failure M They verify that each sub-system or component part of the system has been analyzed and document the results of the analysis.

Risk is a measurement of the combination of the consequence of a failure mode and its probability of occurrence. The failure detection means, such as visual, alarm devices, or none, will be identified.


This is dependent upon advice from safety experts in the QRA field. An RBD connects all parts of the system in order to m616 the operational relationships between each subsystem or component which are required for successful operation of the overall system.

The term used when one unit is functioning and one or more units are on standby, i. The air supply to the dampers in the UPS battery rooms port and starboard was on a single supply line. Any system which has an identical standby is open to the possibility of common mode failures that were not considered in the reliability study. What is an FMEA? Should one of the parallel paths fail, then the system will not fail as the other path is still available. The FMEA test procedures describe the purpose of the test, the vessel and equipment setup for the test, how the equipment failure is to be induced or simulated, and the expected results of the test i.

The most common example, in general terms, is the failure of a common power supply to two redundant elements. The consequences of each assumed failure affecting the next higher systems level will be described. The organisations and persons who want an FMEA may include: The effectiveness of this part of the process is related to the technical strength of the team members in their respective disciplines.

Severity is an assessment of how serious the Effect of the potential Failure Mode is on the overall system or process.
