This paper proposes a elaboration of a Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) for gearboxes to study reliability of statistical models more adequate for components which may be able to generate failures. Therefore there was generated a fault tree with scale and shape factors for each component. Once obtained the statistical models for each failure, a study about critical levels of the system components will be valid by reduction of the FTA models. The aim of the actions in relation to the improvements will increase the reliability of the gearboxes. This method can be applied in various vehicles systems allowing a complete statistic modeling. Thus, a general map of the product can be made, in which there are components that generate or will be able to generate failures in specific kilometer. With this, it is possible to obtain a model for management of the actions of warranty and descriptions for the areas of product development and manufacturing. Moreover, the information about time performance can be widely used in the optimization and improvement of the product design.
