Discover the most effective method for analyzing system and machine failures

Reliability and availability analysis is a tool for the machine and system manufacturer to understand how the failure of a single device spills over the entire system, or machine, and with what consequences. The analyses is recommended to ensure that the user operates the product in the final system correctly.

Based on the relevance that the system must guarantee, we indicate which methodology is the most correct to determine the main failure factors.

These are some of the reliability and availability analysis methodologies that we can carry out to support your engineering:

  • FMEA (Failure Model and Effect Analysis), methodology according to IEC 60812 for the analysis of the failure model of a process, product or system and its effects on the entire plant
  • FMECA (Failure Model and Effect Critically Anaysis), an extension of the FMEA methodology where criticality analysis is added and used to assess the severity of the consequences of a failure
  • FMEDA (Failure Modes, Effects and Diagnostic Analysis), analysis according to the IEC 60812 standard based on the systematic breakdown of the product into its components in order to evaluate failure rates and their effects on safety functions
  • FTA (Fault Tree Analysis), is a deductive analysis according to the IEC 61025 standard that is based on the study of combinations of faults that lead to the unwanted state of a system
  • RBD (Reliability Block Diagram), technique based on the breakdown of the system into functional blocks, as indicated by the IEC 61078 standard
  • HRA (Human Reliability Analysis), set of qualitative and quantitative techniques for the study of the human factor and the probability of human error

Through our consultancy you will be able to identify the risks, accessing tailor-made solutions, which depend on the most suitable technique for the type of system, or machine, in question.


FMECA (Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis) is an analysis technique that expands on the FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), adding analysis of failure modes and relative probability of occurrence to the evidence of weaknesses in a system to assess how severe the consequences of the failure will be.

FMEDA (Failure Modes, Effects and Diagnostic Analysis) is a technique based on systematically analyzing and breaking the product down into its safety-related components in order to identify and classify the failures rates (safe or dangerous, detected or undetected) and the failure modes of each component, the result of which is an estimate of product reliability and its diagnostic capabilities.

FTA (Fault Tree Analysis) is a reliability analysis technique for complex systems conducted using the so-called “fault tree” method, that is, a study on the combination of possible failures and undesirable events in a system.
