Fault Tree Analysis and Application Training

Course Duration: 1 Day - 8 Hours/day

This one-day training is designed to help your company conduct Fault Tree Analysis. Not only will you learn the fault tree symbols and methodologies, but you will also be able to create fault trees for system and component events.

Fault tree analysis is conducted by engineering teams to identify critical elements within the design which can cause a fault. Fault tree analysis can be used in critical and safety related products.

Fault tree analysis is part of ISO 26262, which is the Functional Safety standard that is applied to Safety Related Systems that include electric/electronic systems installed in production passenger vehicles, trucks & busses, and motorcycles.

Learning Objectives

  • Be able to perform a fault tree analysis during any phase of the development process
