Fault Tree Analysis Training by TONEX, FTA Training

Fault Tree Analysis is s a systematic method of system analysis and part of  operations research in system reliability and safety. Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) examines a system from top-down and provides graphical symbols for ease of understanding. It incorporates mathematical tools to focus on critical areas.

Fault tree analysis can also be also as an analytical technique for tracing the events which could contribute. It can be used in accident investigation and in a detailed hazard assessment. The fault tree is a logic diagram based on the principle of multi-causality, which traces all branches of events which could contribute to an accident or failure. Learn the concepts of Fault tree analysis as it is used a symbolic “analytical logic techniques” and its application in reliability and safety analysis. Learn  how basic events, often made up of failures at the component level, could lead to a hypothesized failure of a system.

Learn how fault tree analysis (FTA) is used in  system engineering and analysis practices such as reliability, maintainability and safety.  Using a failures analysis, you can attempt to determine the specific causes by constructing a logic diagram, a top-down approach:

  • Identify potential causes of system failures before the failures actually occur (proactive)
  • Evaluate the probability of the top event using analytical or statistical methods
  • Efforts on improving system safety and reliability
