Reply to "Difference between FMEA and FMECA"

Vee,

Thanks for taking the time to explain the topic. But still it is not clear to me.

You say: criticality number = Probability * consequence * confidence.
But what is the difference between criticality number and RPN (Risk Priority Number)?
Like I know RPN, this is the sum of Severity, Occurrence and Detection rating
If I read your explanation of the three factors that form the criticality number, I cannot find large differences with the RPN, so Probability * consequence * confidence equals Occurrence * Severity * Detection?

Correct me if I'm wrong..
