## FMEA RPN – Risk Priority Number. How to Calculate and Evaluate?

• John Hartwell
• August 18, 2022

## FMEA RPN has widely known as a Risk Priority Number (indicator) in an FMEA. But how to calculate it quickly and evaluate the FMEA RPN effectively? Let’s deep dive in!

1. risk priority number definition.

Risk Priority Number is a numerical assessment of the risk priority level of a failure mode/failure cause in an FMEA analysis. It helps the responsible team/individual prioritize risks and decide on the corrective actions.

## 2. How to calculate the Risk Priority Number?

FMEA RPN is calculated by multiplying Severity (S), Occurrence (O) Or Probability (P), and Detection (D) indexes. Severity, Occurrence, and Detection indexes are derived from the failure mode and effects analysis:

For example: from the Process FMEA of a painting process, the RPN is 120 for the failure mode of foreign body in the painting layer.

## Two options for calculating RPN in an FMEA worksheet

Method 1 : Use the Excel formula. Because of the structure of the FMEA worksheet, the Severity cell is not linked one to one with the Occurrence and Detection cell, and the RPN formula needs to be created manually one by one.

Method 2 : Use FMEA Studio Add-in inside Excel: Create a column with RPN column type inside Column Properties. RPN will be calculated automatically within a second for the whole FMEA worksheet. More detail about this feature are here .

RPN is not the only risk assessment number used with FMEA . Some companies use other indexes to assess risks, such as the Critical Number (CN) or Severity-Occurrence-Detection (SOD). However, they are rarely used.

## 2.1 Critical Number (CN)

Some companies find it difficult to decide on a detection ranking. Therefore, they do not use detection (D) in their calculation of the RPN to avoid arguments regarding the detection ranking.

The FMEA RPN does not cover all the numbers from 1 to 1000. Therefore, some companies use the numerical value of SOD. In this case, the ratings of S, O, and D range from 0 to 9 (not from 1 to 10).

Although Failure Mode 1 has a higher SOD than Failure Mode 2, it has lower risk because its potential for occurrence is small, and the possibility of detection is high (if it happens).

Thus, the disadvantage of SOD is that severity has a more critical role than Occurrence and Detection in the SOD equation.

## 3. How to evaluate Risk Priority Number?

The RPN can be used to prioritize high-risk issues and determine the requirement for corrective action. After calculation, most companies prioritize risks from the highest to the lowest RPN.

The team can use the Risk Priority Number to prioritize and reduce risks in the two following methods:

## 3.1 FMEA RPN Threshold

Many organizations use an RPN limit to determine which failure mode requires corrective action and which risks are acceptable. The RPN threshold is easy to use.

However, using an RPN threshold may cause team members to spend excessive time trying to reduce the Detection, Occurrence, and Severity rankings for lowering the RPN. This situation sometimes places the organization and its customers in danger.

## 3.2 Top RPNs

The other organizations may address the corrective action for the top failure modes/failures causes by Risk Priority Number. After that, the team will work with other top RPNs to continuously improve the process. This loop will continue until the quality target is met.

## 4. Risk Priority Number’s disadvantage

The two ways above are based only on the comparison between the RPN of failure modes. The comparison based on the RPN may not reflect the actual risk. A high RPN failure does not necessarily indicate a high risk for the process or product. Moreover, two failure modes with the same RPN value may not have the same risk level.

However, because they have the same RPN value, an inappropriate action plan for critical failure may be selected. For this reason, the RPN should not be the only index used to evaluate the risk of each failure mode. The team should also use Severity, Occurrence, and Detection to prioritize risks.

## 5. How to evaluate the Risk Priority Number effectively?

5.1 risk evaluation using the fmea rpn with the consideration of the s, o, and d rankings.

Along with RPN, the team should consider the S, O, and D rankings for prioritizing risks one by one through team discussion. However, the team will be overloaded if there are too many failure modes in the FMEA.

Moreover, teams can go through unending arguments to determine which failure requires corrective action.

## 5.2 Risk Matrix (Priority Matrix)

The team can combine the criteria for the RPN and Severity, Occurrence, and Detection rankings by using a matrix. The following is an example of a risk matrix for the RPN and Severity ranking.

The following example of a risk matrix includes a combination of severity and occurrence.

Color indicator: • Red: must eliminate the risk or reduce its level. • Yellow: should eliminate the risk or reduce its level but not mandatory. • Green: Acceptable risk.

Note: The team can use a three-dimensional matrix of Severity, Occurrence, and Detection. However, this type of risk matrix is complicated to use without an FMEA software like FMEA Studio.

The organizations can create a matrix depending on their process and available resources. However, the team should apply the criteria consistently.

## 6. Conclusion

Using the RPN in FMEA is the most common and convenient method of evaluating risk because the FMEA RPN is easy to understand, whereas the entire FMEA methodology is complicated.

However, using only the RPN to determine the failure mode that requires corrective action can cause severe quality problems in an organization.

## Risk Priority Number (RPN)

Published: April 27, 2022 by Richard Penn

Dealing with risks associated with failure modes in projects and processes is part of normal business activity, but when is a risk acceptable? By evaluating the impact and likelihood of the failure to occur, we can prioritize which risks to accept and which to address. Welcome to the Risk Priority Number.

## Overview: What is RPN?

Risk Priority Number (RPN) is an integral part of the creation of a Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA ) document but is also used widely wherever a risk management strategy is deployed.

RPN is a multiplication of a number of factors that aim to assess the risk of a failure mode escaping and potentially presenting to the customer as a defect . The factors used are:

• Severity (S) – the impact of the failure mode being present, ranked 1 to 10 with 10 being highest severity and typically hazardous without warning, with the potential for significant harm
• Occurrence (O) –  the probability of the failure mode being present, ranked 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest occurrence and typically defined as almost inevitable
• Detection (D) – the ease or capability of failure mode detection and escape prevention, ranked 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest uncertainty of detection

RPN is then calculated as the multiplication S x O x D. There are a couple of things to be aware of with RPN:

• The scale is not continuous due to the possible multiplication of numbers e.g 13 is not a possible RPN
• It is possible to have a high RPN with a low severity rating which can lead to teams focussing upon low customer impact failure modes

Whilst it is possible to use only the RPN value as a strategy to determine which failure modes to address first, for example all RPN values > 120, it is also common to use both the severity rating and the RPN value to prioritize risk reduction activities. This approach utilizes a risk priority matrix, an example of which is shown below for illustration only.

## An industry example of RPN

A cosmetic company with an online shop for purchase of their products wanted to improve their customer purchase experience due to a number of poor ratings and negative feedback. Recognizing that changing the current online order and dispatch process would potentially introduce new risks and failure modes, their manager for Continuous Improvement (CI) assembled a team to review failure modes and develop a risk management strategy. Being familiar with FMEA techniques the CI manager utilized the RPN methodology to drive the risk management strategy.

Following brainstorming sessions to document the new potential failure modes the severity, occurrence and detection of the modes were discussed and agreed. The RPN was then calculated and the team reviewed the numerical values for RPN and cross referenced these to the severity rating. The team devised a strategy to address all of the failure modes with a severity rating of 7 or higher in combination with an RPN of 150 or higher as priority one. The team also agreed that any modes with a severity of 2 or less would be accepted and no action required.

Following a systematic review of RPN and severity, the risks associated with the new failure modes were addressed or mitigated leading to acceptable risk classification for all items and successful deployment of the updated customer purchase experience.

1. how is rpn calculated.

The Risk Priority Number (RPN) is typically calculated by multiplying the Severity (S), Occurrence (O) and Detection (D) ratings for a particular failure mode, RPN = SxOxD

## 2. What is an acceptable RPN?

There is no simple answer to this question. The acceptability is a function of how risk averse a company is plus factors such as product or process maturity. Often the combination of high severity and a high RPN is used to help focus on risks that must be addressed as a priority

## 3. Is RPN only used in FMEA?

Whilst RPN is probably most well known from Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) it can also be used wherever a risk management strategy is deployed to focus on the high impact items.

## Risk Priority Number (RPN)

A risk priority number (RPN) is a numerical assessment of the risk assigned to a failure mode when conducting a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) . It involves rating a failure mode’s severity, probability of occurrence, and likelihood of detection on a numeric scale, usually ranging from 1 to 5 or 1 to 10. The RPN is calculated by multiplying the rating for each factor. Based on the RPN, organizations can rank failure modes based on their relative risk.

The Risk Priority Number is a measure that’s utilized when assessing risk in the workplace. It helps to identify critical methods within your business’s process of design. Values range from 1, indicating the best, to 1,000, indicating the worst. Although the RPN is most commonly used in the automobile industry and aerospace, it may also be applied to a manufacturing setting.

A Risk Priority Number aids ongoing improvement and ensures the manufacturing process is as successful and secure as possible. RPN is commonly used in Lean Manufacturing. It's established by the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FEMA), a risk assessment tool. FEMA evaluates the detection, severity, and occurrence of risks and prioritizes them based on urgency. Those cases that are most common and severe should be addressed as soon as possible.

Severity, occurrence, and detection are each rated on a scale from one to ten, then multiplied together to provide the RPN. They are defined as follows:

• 10 (Hazardous); affects safe vehicle operation or involves noncompliance with government regulation
• 6 (Moderate); item/vehicle operable, but comfort and convenience are compromised and the user will experience discomfort
• 2 (Very Minor); fit and finish/squeak and rattle item does not conform, and the defect will be noticed by discriminating customers
• Occurrence (O) is an estimation that considers documentation of similar processes, analysis, and calculations. This is also known as “likelihood” and estimates whether a failure will occur during the design life or production. One rating indicates that the likelihood of failure is unlikely, while a ten indicates that failure is inevitable. Examples:
• 8 (High); repeated failures
• 5 (Moderate); occasional failures
• 1 (Remote); failure unlikely
• 9 (Very Remote); very little chance that the failure will be detected
• 6 (Low); low chance of detection
• 1 (Almost Certain); the failure will almost always be detected

A word of caution: The general rule of thumb is that the higher the RPN value, the more critical the failure mode. However, this may not always be the case. Sometimes the RPN of different cases may be seemingly obvious or identical, and you should look at the breakdown of the individual components of severity, occurrence, and detection to determine exactly how high the risk is.

For example, severity is given the most consideration when you’re assessing risk. In this chart, you’ll see that the case which receives the lowest RPN has the highest severity score and should receive priority.

The severity and occurrence (S x O) combination is also a primary consideration since this represents the criticality of the risk. In this chart, the RPN is identical, however, the second case has the highest scores for both severity and occurrence and should receive priority.

Is it time to say goodbye to fmea risk priority number (rpn) scores.

By Mark Durivage , Quality Systems Compliance LLC

FMEA helps quantify and prioritize risk using criticality/severity, occurrence, and detection scores that are multiplied to produce the RPN. Criticality/severity (S) is a measure of the seriousness of the possible consequences of a hazard. Probability of occurrence (O) is the likelihood that a cause will occur and that it will induce the detrimental consequences of the associated hazard. Detection (D) is the probability that control (design, in-process, inspection, alert/warning) will eliminate, mitigate, or catch the defect. The RPN output of an FMEA is a relative risk score for each failure mode, which is used to rank the failure modes on a relative risk basis.

The scoring system typically used for severity/criticality, probability of occurrence, and probability of detection is generally from 1 to 5, with 1 considered low risk and 5 high risk. The RPN score is calculated by multiplying the severity/criticality, probability of occurrence, and probability of detection.

Example: A process FMEA has been developed for a new product using Table 1. A certain characteristic has a criticality/severity of 4, a probability of occurrence of 3, and a probability of detection of 3. The RPN is calculated as follows:

RPN = Severity x Occurrence x Detection = 4 x 3 x 3= 36

Table 1: Example Criticality/Severity, Occurrence, and Detection Ratings

According to Table 2, an RPN of 36 is considered undesirable . However, the severity and probability of occurrence should also be evaluated for this characteristic. Table 3 indicates for a criticality/severity of 4 with a probability of occurrence of 3, the risk is considered unacceptable .

With the current use of RPN scores, both Table 2 and Table 3 must be referenced to ensure the organization takes appropriate action.

Table 2: Example RPN Action Criteria

Table 3: Example Criticality/Severity and Occurrence Action Requirements

*ALARP = As Low as Reasonably Possible

An Alternative Method

The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) and the Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA) jointly released an updated FMEA handbook on April 2, 2019. One of the major changes with the new AIAG-VDA FMEA process is the use of the RPN has been eliminated. The RPN has been replaced by an action priority (AP) table.

The AP tables assign one of three suggested rankings for each action based upon the S, O, and D values. The AP rankings are as follows:

• High Priority. The FMEA team must identify appropriate actions or improve the prevention or detection controls or reduce the probability of occurrence.
• Medium Priority. The FMEA team should identify an appropriate action or improve the prevention or detection controls or reduce the probability of occurrence.
• Low Priority. The FMEA team could improve upon the prevention and detection rankings or reduce the probability of occurrence.

Example: A process FMEA has been developed for a new product using Table 4. A certain characteristic has a criticality/severity of moderate , a probability of occurrence of moderate , and a probability of detection of adequate .

Table 4: Example Criticality/Severity, Occurrence, and Detection Ratings

Using Table 5, a criticality/severity of moderate, a probability of occurrence of moderate, and a probability of detection of adequate produce an Action Priority of high . This requires the FMEA team to identify appropriate actions or improve the prevention or detection controls or reduce the probability of occurrence.

Table 5: Action Priority Ratings

It may be time to consider eliminating the use of the traditional RPN score and transitioning to the use of AP ratings. AP ratings are much simpler to use, do not require a calculation (eliminating the validation of a spreadsheet), and provides a single simple table reference to determine the appropriate level of action.

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of establishing procedures (documenting) to manage the tools and methods used. Best practice includes providing rationale for your organization’s use of risk management tools and activities. The requirements and risk management tools presented in this article can and should be utilized based upon industry practice, guidance documents, and regulatory requirements.

## Risk Priority Number (RPN)

Home » Risk Priority Number (RPN)

## What is a Risk Priority Number?

A Risk Priority Number (RPN) is a calculation of the overall risk when completing a Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA).

## RPN Calculation

The RPN is a calculated score comprising of Severity (S), Occurrence (O) and Detection (D) from an FMEA process. Each of the S.O.D. scores is assigned to a potential failure mode identified during the initial analysis stage of the FMEA.

The final RPN value is then evaluated with respect to the ultimate risk of the individual failure modes. In general, the higher the RPN the greater the risk, however, this is not always the case.

Here is an example where one of the failure modes would require greater attention than the others despite having the same scores:

With a high Severity and high Occurrence but a low detection score, failure mode 2 is clearly more critical than the other two failure modes.
