Separate umca were arranged so that loss of both clutches could not happen simultaneously. The FMEA considers a single failure only at any one time single point failure. The compensating provisions, either equipment redundancy, control system response, or operator action, which circumvent or mitigate the effect of the failure.

Classification Societies will only assess the system to either Class 2 or Class 3 and nothing in between. Identify the equipment or subsystem, mode of operation and the equipment;? The DP operations manual was lacking in specific operations data. As there are so many of these programs, mica is not possible to list them, but many can be found advertised on the Internet with brief descriptions of their functions.

The equipment layout is observed to verify that the DP equipment is not vulnerable to failure through failures in other equipment in the same compartment. It is effectively a means of estimating how often each item in the system will fail, usually by using actual failure data gathered in the field, and then calculating how often the whole system will fail. Single failure criteria include any active component or system, eg. Main System Reference Drawing: Essentially the FMEA is to: The analysis would m66 progress further to the effects of failure of items made up from ima individual components and so on up through the system levels until the system as a whole has been analysed.


Vessels are to be fitted with a DP system providing automatic and manual position and heading control under specified maximum environmental conditions, during and following any single fault excluding a loss of compartment or compartments.

Case study – Load sharing imbalance caused loss of position

The environments in which the system is to operate should be defined and the performance level expected in each should be specified. However, FMEA techniques can be applied to non-redundant, or simplex, systems. The end of provides an excellent opportunity mica highlight some of the measures that have been taken by the maritime….

It should contain a practical test programme, which, in the case of a DP vessel, is carried out mainly at sea when in full DP mode, together with the test results. N166 SCRs had to be reset locally and this took time. Loss of one supply if not alarmed is a hidden failure and will mean that a failure of the other supply will result in a total failure of the system being supplied. Includes servicing, repair, modification, upgrading, overhaul, inspection and condition determination.

It is a design tool that has been around for a number of years and is used as a means of identifying single point failures or common mode failures in the design of any type of equipment, whether it is a simple widget or a complex system such as a DP system.

A failure which will have an effect on operational capability but does not result in termination of the operation. The flow of the signal in the electronics is not important in the RBD, only the chain of required elements needed for successful operation is important.

Events and gates in fault tree analysis are represented by symbols. Severity Class 4 — Minor. This would detail the equipment item down for maintenance, give the items critical to position keeping most likely to have a significant effect should they fail, and, for each case, give the effect of failure and a suggested alert status whilst the maintenance m16 being carried out. A potential Failure Mode describes the way in which a system or process could fail to perform its desired function design intent or performance requirements as described by the specification.


In one case, the doppler log and a network distribution unit interfacing with one of the dual networks were fed from the same fuse. Failure Mode and Effec A brief outline of the FMEA requirements is given and, later in the document, states the requirement for a test procedure m66 demonstrate redundancy in the system.

Safeguards that are designed to prevent or mitigate the accident are also shown for example a relief valve or backup cooling system. These fall into four categories after the failure, i. These have added redundancy over and above the Class 2 requirements, but do not quite comply with Class 3 requirements. These Consequence Classes and Equipment Classes therefore dictate that a Consequence Class 0 operation can be carried out by the equivalent of an Equipment Class 1 vessel with little or no redundancy or, indeed, a vessel with much more redundancy, whereas a Consequence Class 3 operation can only be carried out by the equivalent of an Equipment Class 3 vessel with considerable redundancy.

For DP Class 3 vessels, verification of cable routing is necessary as part of the analysis. Data connections were provided between the two systems to enable load balancing when the two sections of main switchboard were connected.
