This paper presents a tool for reliability and failure mode analysis based on an advanced version of the popular failure mode, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA) procedure. To help the analyst formulating efficiently effective criticality assessments of the possible causes of failure, the fuzzy logic technique is adopted. Particular attention has been devoted to support the maintenance staff with a fuzzy criticality assessment model easy to implement and design. To test the proposed methodology, an actual application concerning a process plant in milling field for human consumption flour is showed in the paper.
