Criticality – Mil-Std-1629 Approach. CRITICALITY is a measure of the frequency of occurrence of an effect. May be based on qualitative judgement or May be based on failure rate data (most common). Criticality Analysis. Qualitative analysis:

Failure Mode Criticality (CM) is the portion of the criticality number for an item, due to one of its failure modes, which results in a particular severity classification (e.g. results in an end effect with severity I, II, etc...).
A resistor R6 with a failure rate of .01 failures per million hours is located on the Missile Interface Board of the XYZ Missile Launch System. If the resistor fails, it fails open 70 % of the time and short 30 % of the time. If it fails open, the system will be unable to launch a missile 30 % of the time, the missile explodes in the tube 20 % of the time, and there is no effect 50 % of the time. If it fails short, the performance of the missile is degraded 50 % of the time and the missile inadvertently launches 50 % of the time. Mission time is 1 hour.
λp = 0.01 in every case
α = 0.7 for open
β = 0.3 for unable to fire
β = 0.2 for missile explodes
β = 0.5 for no effect
α = 0.3 for short
β = 0.5 for missile performance degradation
β = 0.5 for inadvertent launch
Cm for R6 open resulting in being unable to fire is (.3)(.7)(.01)(1)=0.0021
Cm for R6 open resulting in a missile explosion is (.2)(.7)(.01)(1)=0.0014
Cm for R6 open resulting in no effect is (.5)(.7)(.01)(1)=0.0035
Cm for R6 short resulting in performance degradation is (.5)(.3)(.01)(1)=0.0015
Cm for R6 short resulting in inadvertent launch is (.5)(.3)(.01)(1)=0.0015
Item Criticality (Cr) is the criticality number associated with the item under analysis. For a mission phase, Cr is the sum of the item’s failure mode criticality numbers, Cm, which result in the same severity classification.
Determine failure mode criticality values and item criticality values for the R9 resistor, and create an item criticality matrix.
