FTA Training Program

Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)

ON SITEOFF SITEONLINE

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Fault tree analysis (FTA) is a systematic, deductive (top-down), graphical methodology for defining a single, specific, and undesirable event, and determining all possible reasons (failures) that could cause that event to occur. Failures can result from hardware, software, human factors, and/or process causes. The FTA, using a graphical tree to show the cause-and-effect relationships between the top undesired event and its potential contributing causes, focuses on a select subset of all possible system/product failures, specifically those that can cause a catastrophic top event from either a safety or reliability perspective. Conversely, a failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) progresses systematically and sequentially through all possible failure modes, regardless of the nature or severity of their effects on the undesired top-level undesired event.

This FTA course comprehends industry best practices for design preparedness and organizes them into a disciplined and logical step-by-step approach. FTA provides an analytical approach to use in the design process to prevent design flaws and quantify their potential impact on the final customer.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

This course is intended to provide an overview on FTA. At the end of this course you should be able to:

⦁ Define how to analyze a basic set of faults for a particular component/sub-system and how they “layer” down to specific causes
⦁ List the benefits of FTA in the Design space
⦁ Define how FTA compares to DFMEA, and which tool to use in particular situations
⦁ Define the process steps to construct a fault tree and assign failure probabilities
⦁ Define the difference between event and gate symbols
⦁ Define how quantitative FTA can be used to model various design options
⦁ Define Qualitative vs. Quantitative FTA
⦁ Define the basics of advanced FTA applications such as Markov Analysis

COURSE OUTLINE

FTA is an analytical method that graphically depicts the connection between various faults that could cause a specific major failure in question. FTA will support your organizations Functional Safety systems, and ensure sensitive sub-systems have oversight and proper “due care”.

This course will cover the following FTA items:

⦁ FTA Basics
⦁ Benefits of FTA in Design
⦁ FTA vs. DFMEA
⦁ FTA Usages
⦁ Process Steps to Construct Fault Tree
⦁ Event and Gate Symbols
⦁ Quantitative FTA
⦁ Calculations and Examples
⦁ Advanced FTA Applications – Markov Analysis
⦁ Qualitative vs. Quantitative Fault Tree

At the end of the training the participant will be required to take quizzes that test proficiency, and complete a course survey based on the course material and the instructor. ReliaTrain uses the results of the quizzes and surveys to update the training to provide the best experience to participants.

COURSE PREREQUISITES

This is a Level One foundation training module and does not have required prerequisite training or experience. However, this course is a Prerequisite for higher level (Competency, Proficient, and Expert) FMEA Certification.

COURSE RECOMMENDED PARTICIPANTS
