A Hybrid Risk Evaluation Model for Automotive Production

Mehmet Turgut and Alp Ustundag

Abstract—Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is used commonly for the prioritization of failures in the automotive production. Traditional FMEA determines the risk priorities of failure modes, which require the risk factors like the occurrence (O), severity (S) and detection (D) of each failure mode to be evaluated. However, it has some drawbacks so that affect the risk evaluation and correction action. It is very difficult for three risk factors to be evaluated precisely. Additionally, traditional method cannot capture different team members’ opinions and prioritize failure modes under different types of uncertainties. So, in this study, FMEA using fuzzy evidential approach and grey theory are used to prioritize the failures for a truck production company in Turkey. Degrees of relation for the six failure modes are determined. The defect of “unstable” is found as the most important and serious risk according to the analysis.

Index Terms—Automotive production, failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), fuzzy evidential approach, grey theory, risk prioritization.
