Evaluation of PC-FMEA Using Network Analysis
Keywords:Network science, PC-FMEA, risk assessment, pairwise comparison
Abstract – PC-FMEA is a method that combines the pairwise comparison and basic FMEA (Failure Modes and Effects Analysis) methods. Using the pairwise comparison, which of the risks is more severe, common or noticeable can be determined. The results evaluated by the pairwise comparison can be modeled with networks, where the risks can be ranked according to the criteria using the PageRank and weighted in-degree values. Applying these two solutions together, a form of risk assessment can be created where risks are assessed by pairwise comparisons and the results analyzed using network research tools. The resulting method also provides two types of evaluations to rank the risks and also facilitates visualization. This study aimed to develop the application of PC-FMEA in network research.
