Single Point Failures Revealed in Service: The study of man-machine interfaces in order to minimise human errors due to imxa or physical fatigue. With the effect of fire being considered, a backup DP control station would be located in a separate compartment to that in which the main control station is located. It is left to the owner of the vessel to ensure that the added redundancy i.

Case study – Load sharing imbalance caused loss of position – IMCA

However, FMEA techniques can be applied to non-redundant, or simplex, systems. To this end, it must be left to the experience of the FMEA team to assess to what levels the analysis should be taken.

Practical FMEA testing must be a structured and well co-ordinated exercise. Having the Worksheets in a database provides an effective means of information distribution via e-mail amongst the various parties that will be involved with the FMEA. The consequences of each assumed failure affecting the item is described along with any secondorder effects which may result.


Obviously, a single failure will mean loss of the system function, but the FMEA will be able to pin point areas where inexpensive changes could be made that will increase the availability of the system, for example, adding duplicated power supplies.

Often it is found that fuse failure alarms are not present on essential circuits supplied by redundant power supplies. In a similar manner, vessel audits are necessary when an FMEA is being carried out on an existing vessel. Sensors connected directly to the back-up imcw control system are to be installed in the same A fire zone as the back-up control system. This site uses cookies: The power generation system will have a minimum of two enginerooms separated by an A60 bulkhead.

Detection is an assessment of the likelihood that the mechanisms provided to prevent the Cause of the Failure Mode from occurring will detect the Cause of the Failure Mode or the Failure Mode itself. A recommendation for corrective action is usually offered. Two m16 self monitoring control systems must be installed. Potential failure modes have been uncovered using FMEA techniques that could have caused significant downtime or, worse, loss of critical position, if the FMEA had not been carried out.

Guidance on failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) – IMCA

What practical tests are required? One was from 48V DC, provided from a common bus bar by battery and parallel connected float chargers, and the other from V AC, provided from a common bus bar by inverters inca from the 48V DC source. It is easiest to track all drawings received, reviewed and revised using a database.


Another fault found is common power supplies being provided for redundant displays.

Guidance on failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA)

Where appropriate, the FMEA analysts will provide a recommended solution to the problem. For the same electronic card, the RBD will include a combination of series and parallel blocks, i. It is useful to highlight by listing in the Final Report those recommendations that have been actioned or not actioned during the course of the FMEA.

If so, the first failure should be alarmed. An FBD models the interconnection and relationships among physical system parameters. Subsystem effects concentrate on the effect an assumed failure has on the operation and function of the items in the next and higher systems levels above the systems level under consideration.

If RAM parameters show that the failure occurrences are more frequent than desired or maintenance takes longer, then the availability target of the system will not be met and corrective action will be required. The intention is, essentially, to confirm failure modes and not test the whole system for correct installation. The FMEA will assist in development of the operations manuals and training programmes.

Questions are added to the list as appropriate and the responses to the questions recorded when received. Lessons learned The failure modes and effects analysis did not consider all the potential operating modes.
