Abstract

The objective of this article is to identify the proactive and reactive risk identification and analysis of steam generating unit (SGU) in sugar plant. The expert discussion and fish-bone diagram were used for identification and presentation of operational risk, and in the second phase, fuzzy multi-attribute decision-making method (MADM) and failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) were used to carry out the risk analysis. The conventional FMEA is susceptible to uncertainties. This uncertainty lies in the perfectly while and perfectly black area. This region of confusion is also called grey area. The limitation of conventional FMEA was removed by the application of fuzzy-based grey relational approach for prioritizing cause of failure. The results of the analysis were shared with maintenance engineer and system analyst. The output of the analysis will assist maintenance engineer for better understanding of risk in SGU and thereby planning its proper maintenance.
