AGUIAR, Dimas Campos de  and  SALOMON, Valério A. P.. Evaluation of process failure prevention using decision-making methods. Prod. [online]. 2007, vol.17, n.3, pp.502-519. ISSN 0103-6513.

This work presents an investigation about the use of Process FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis) with the exhibition of identified irregularities for its correct use. The AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) and the Fuzzy Sets are applied in the study of current practices for the FMEA use. AHP is applied to prioritize the irregularities as for the gravity of its occurrence. The Fuzzy Sets are applied for performance evaluation of the FMEA use in some automotive companies. As result, there are the acceptance of eight and the not acceptance of tree forms FMEA discovered.

Keywords : Process FMEA; AHP; Fuzzy Sets.
