Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) is a structured, graphical technique used in maintenance operations and management to identify and analyze the potential causes of a system failure. It is a deductive reasoning process that starts with a single system failure and works backwards to identify the root causes of the failure. FTA is used to identify the most likely causes of a system failure as well as the most effective ways to prevent or mitigate the failure. It is also used to identify potential safety hazards and to develop strategies to reduce the risk of system failure. FTA is a powerful tool for maintenance operations and management, as it helps to identify and address potential problems before they occur.
