When selecting competing corrective actions on FMEA, decision makers may have a different desirability to target a certain improvement goal. Besides, once the corrective actions have been implemented, there may exist a considerable degree of risk due to the possible uncertainties of the outcome. This paper attempts to present FMEA-based corrective action prioritization, incorporating both management desirability and implementation relevant risk into the model. To reflect team desirability and risk attitude in estimating the attractiveness of corrective actions, the Derringer desirability and risk aversion factor are used. An illustrative example is provided to demonstrate the applicability of the proposed model.
