Description:

A fault tree is a graphical representation of logical combinations of causes of a defined undesired event or state. Examples of types of final events are an explosion, failure of equipment, the release of toxic gas and an interruption to production.

Goal:

The aim of the course is to introduce and develop a basic understanding of the fault tree analyses technique by means of short presentations and a syndicate exercise. The syndicate exercise will be chosen to match the client's activities. Attendees will gain the following benefits:

Objectives:

Some of the advantages of Fault Tree Analysis are:

  • It is an aid for identifying risks in complex systems.

  • It makes it possible to focus on one fault at a time without losing an overall perspective.

  • It provides an overview on how faults can lead to serious consequences.

  • For those with a certain familiarity with the analysis, it is possible to understand the results relatively quickly.

  • It provides an opportunity to make probabilistic estimates.

Outlines:

  • Identifying and Grouping Scenarios
  • Fault Tree Logic
  • Constructing Trees
  • Rules of thumb
  • Introduction to Failure Rate Data Bases
  • Quantifying Trees
  • Risk Tolerability Criteria

Who Can Benefit?

Who are familiar with other hazard and risk assessment techniques (e.g., HAZOP, FMEA) and want to learn another versatile tool. .
