Failure Mode & Effect Analysis

Failure Mode & Effect Analysis (FMEA) is the analytical study of a system's integrity in the midst of a failure. It is commonly applied to systems that cannot fail even when several critical components in the system have. In the maritime sector, FMEA is conducted on a 5-yearly basis to determine the single-point-failure tolerance of the DP system of vessels. DP system works as an autopilot mechanism that the crew relies on to maintain the vessel's position whilst they can focus on other critical activities. These activities are usually done in crowded waters where losing position can lead to catastrophe. FMEA is integral to the reliability of the DP system and a critical component for charterer in evaluating the vessel's DP worthiness.
