Failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) is one of the formal techniques for evaluation of failure mode in mechanical and electronic equipments. The FMEA may be a very helpful tool for identifying weak points in the design stage of a product/process. The aim of this paper is to develop a new maintenance decision strategy by integrating the criticality of various factors related to failure and repair of a component/subsystem as an alternative to traditional approach of Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA). The methodology presented is based on Analytical Network Process (ANP), a multicriteria decision making technique. We propose a decision support tool analysis for determining maintenance priority action in which the typical FMEA parameters are modeled. The approach has been validated in a real case study concerning the European Train Control System - E.T.C.S.
