I am undetaking a FMECA and am trying to determine as to whether or not the criticality analysis (Severity of failure v. Probability of failure matrix)takes into account equipment that has redundancy or does it look at the failure of the item as a stand alone item and does not take into account the item having redundancy?
I hope this makes sense!
Thanks for any advice.

After finishing the FMECA do a FMES(Failure Mode Effects Summary). Please refer to APR4761 for guidance.
This should help as I have been through this before.
