Abstract: This study proposes a new method for performing Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (AFMEA) based on quantitative data rather than relying on expertise and employing the cost of various failures in order to make more accurate and Cost-oriented decisions for preventive maintenance actions. Considering different failure costs, dependability of parameters, and replication of failure causes in the new method, we put forward new formulations for calculating three main components of risk priority number (RPN). Propounding a case study from an automotive supplier, we compare the results of the traditional FMEA with new outcomes in order to gain some experience with the modified method and to analyze its usefulness. The performance of AFMEA will then be discussed and evaluated with datasets in three different periods using receiver-operating characteristics (ROC) curves. The result shows the superiority of the modified FMEA in contrast to the traditional FMEA.
