Using Quantitative Fault  Tree Analysis Based on  Method of Cut Sets to Predict Failure

Using Quantitative Fault Tree Analysis Based on Method of Cut Sets to Predict Failure

Originally, the intent of fault tree analysis (FTA) was to assess equipment reliability in the space industry. Nowadays, FTA is being widely used in any type of study that requires quantifying frequency or probability, or just for deductive representation of events that, when triggered, result in an occurrence of a top event. This article summarizes FTA quantification using the method of cut sets (MOCUS) and describes the methods of Birnbaum, criticality and Fussell-Vesely.
