The conventional Failure Mode and Effects Analysis which is popularly use for prioritising risk of failure modes of industrial products has limitations such as the inability of the technique to utilise imprecise ratings from experts. These limitations has impact negatively on its effectiveness in prioritising risk. This paper presents a technique which integrate Averaging technique with MAUT method for Failure Mode and Effects Analysis. The objective is to develop an alternative tool which avoid the limitations of the conventional FMEA such that risk of failure modes is prioritised more efficiently. The suitability of the proposed approach is demonstrated with a case study of rotor blades of an aircraft turbine. The results show that the proposed approach is more flexible and effective for practical application than the conventional FMEA.
