GROUP-BASED FAILURE EFFECTS ANALYSIS

K. JENAB, B. S. DHILLON
2005 International Journal of Reliability, Quality and Safety Engineering (IJRQSE)  
The experts' opinions differ substantially because the experts do not often agree on the level of the failure factors (failure probability, non-detection probability, severity of effect, and expected cost  ...  Therefore, conflict always occurs in Group-based Failure Effects Analysis (GFEA).  ...  To dilute the divergence of experts' opinion and to aggregate the opinions, the Group-based Failure Effects Analysis method has constituted the steps as follows: Step 0.  ...
