ABSTRACT
The paper deals with the proposal of new maintenance system on a semi-trailer combination. Analysis of wear and damage of air brake system components used on the semi-trailer combination based on real experience from practice and creation of the FMEA analysis of the system using software support are presented. The need for continuous improvement of product quality, reliability and safety arises from product specifications, government regulatory requirements, agency recommendations, legal implications and above all a company’s desire to improve its market position and customer satisfaction. These issues require product manufacturers to perform risk analyses that identify and minimize part/system failures throughout the product‘s life cycle. The FMEA methodology is one of the risk analysis techniques recommended by international standards. It is a systematic process to identify potential failures to fulfil the intended function, to identify possible failure causes so the causes can be eliminated, and to locate the failure consequences so the consequences can be reduced.
