Abstract

Transportation industries are growing not only in volume but in technology as well. To keep pace with changing business paradigms, automotive manufactures needs to use latest information technology and tools to make the transportation system economically viable, safe and reliable. Safety is the most important concern for today’s railway system. Various subsystems of modern rail are safety critical and could result in loss of life, significant property damage or damage to the environment, if failure occurs. This paper presents the systematic approach to counter the risk in such system by analyzing the failure mode and its effect. The automatic door operation subsystem which forms one of the major safety critical systems in metro train is discussed along with a case study by analyzing various failure modes and its effect. Analysis processes as well as the significance of different metrics are also elaborated.
