Fault Tree Analysis Course
You've asked for it. HCRQ is responding to that need!
This is a "soup-to-nuts" course on Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) - hands-on!
There is a Chinese proverb which states:
I hear and I forget.
I see and I learn.
I do and I understand.
At this course, each attendee is equipped with:
- a computer,
- a printer, and
- FTA software (CAFTA).
- Theory is one thing.
- Samples help.
- Paper exercises go one step further but ...
- there is no substitute for hands-on training.
- You want the "rubber to hit the road"!
- You want to return to work and start producing
professional FTAs immediately
- and this means more than just producing the trees themselves.
FTA can imply different things to different people as reflected by the wide range of depths of analysis that exist.
- event representation,
- quantitative analysis,
- fault tree verification,
- minimal cut set generation, and analysis,
- common mode analysis, and
- supporting material
varies dramatically as does fault tree quality.
There are many poor FTAs out there, produced even
by some of the largest corporations. They suffer
from incompleteness, inaccuracy, invalid base event
probabilities (a real killer), and sometimes too much detail. Some
are just plain cuckoo. If they have not been
already, they may someday be fodder for
and ... it will be easy pickings!
What criteria should be applied to determine whether to accept or reject fault tree analyses? There are 20 attributes to look for. In a recent survey most fault tree analysts did not come close to answering this question. If you work for government branches (e.g., FAA, FDA, FRA, DOD, and MOD), clients, auditors, or system integrators, and are a reviewer of contract deliverables, you should know this! This checklist is included in this course. Click here if you need a copy of this list now.
We will show you how to produce
- high quality FTAs,
- logically structured FTAs,
- more accurate FTAs,
- traceable FTAs, and
- more economical FTAs.
This course is backed by over 20 years producing
and reviewing FTAs.
This course is backed by teaching FTA since 1992.
You will benefit from the lessons we have learned along the way.
There is no better course on FTA than this one.
Have you taken a course from an FTA tool provider? These courses teach you how to use the tool, and include elementary examples. This course leaves those behind in the dust.
This course is taught by a renowned system safety/software safety engineer.
