The scale of complexity found in modern aircraft systems necessitates an approach different from that applied traditionally.

One incident occurred on September 8, 1994 when a Boeing 737-300 of USAIR Flight 427 crashed near Pittsburgh, PA, killing 132 people. Another incident was when the Boeing 737 Flight 185 of SilkAiron plunged from 35 000 ft into a muddy river in Indonesia on December 19, 1997, killing all 104 people aboard. 6 million to the families of three people killed. On the contrary, the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) concluded that there were no mechanical defects and the pilot intentionally caused the crash.

In case there are uncertainties in evaluating criteria, a sophisticated robust decision rule should attempt to incorporate the uncertainties into the decision-making process. One of the difficulties of dealing with uncertainties is coming up with the probabilities of the uncertain parameters and factors. 5 Feasibility Analysis In the early stages of design and by employing brainstorming, a few promising concepts are suggested which seem consistent with the scheduling and available resources. Prior to committing resources and personnel to the detail design phase, an important design activity – feasibility analysis – must be performed.
