This paper combines FMEA and n2 approaches in order to create a methodology to determine risks associated with the components of an underwater system. This methodology is based on defining the risk level related to each one of the components and interfaces that belong to a complex underwater system. As far as the authors know, this approach has not been reported before. The resulting information from the mentioned procedures is combined to find the system's critical elements and interfaces that are most affected by each failure mode. Finally, a calculation is performed to determine the severity level of each failure mode based on the system's critical elements.
