The goal of the FMECA (Failure Modes Effects and Criticality Analysis) process is to determine the consequences that failures may have on the function and behavior of a complex system. In the aeronautic industry this process is very important and must comply to international standards. However, most of the process is currently performed manually. This can be problematic since although the basic process is not difficult, taking into account all behaviors and all the interactions between the behaviors of several components of a system can be very complex. In the paper we discuss how MBR (Model Based Reasoning) can support the process as it is defined by the aeronautic industry and we present a toolkit which implement this concept.

Keywords: PAIS, Model based Reasoning, Failure Mode Effects Analysis, Diagnosis
