In this paper, the results of the process of analyzing potential failure situations on the operational product of the reaction wheel condition control operator are discussed and the effects of the identified failure situations are eliminated or reduced. The technique of analyzing failure modes and their effects is the first technique in meeting the requirements of reliability in design. In this regard, the block diagram of the functional flow of the reaction wheel is presented for the first time and the dependence of the functions is presented statically in the form of a matrix. To achieve this goal, the different parts of this operation are identified and their failure modes and the cause of failures of each part are determined. Also, the effects of failure of different levels will be determined locally, at the equipment level, at the subsystem level and at the system level. In addition, the way to diagnose failure and deal with the effect of failure is presented and related analysis is performed, which is a quantitative analysis and will determine the parameters of severity of error effect, probability number and criticality number, calculation and critical items. Then, based on the identified critical sections, a list of critical items is also extracted. The information extracted from the analysis of failure modes and their effects, while helping to improve the reliability of the design of the reaction wheel operator, will provide the designer with important data for fault and error management during the test and mission stages
