SEV = How severe is effect on the customer?
OCC = How frequent is the cause likely to occur?
DET = How probable is detection of cause?
RPN = Risk priority number in order to rank concerns; calculated as SEV x OCC x DET

Actions taken

10

What are the existing controls that
either prevent the failure mode
from occurring or detect it should it
occur?

1000

What are the actions
for reducing the
occurrence of the
cause or for improving
its detection? You
should provide actions
on all high RPNs and
on severity ratings of 9
or 10.

In what ways can the step

go wrong?

What is the impact on the
customer if the failure mode is
not prevented or corrected?

10

What causes the step to go
wrong? (i.e., How could the
failure mode occur?)

fuel

empty tank

unable to reach the
destination / penality / time

destination / penality / time

Who is responsible for
the recommended
action? What date

by?

What were the actions
implemented? Include
