A Function Failure Approach to Fault Tree Analysis for Automotive Systems 2008-01-0846

This paper introduces a function failure approach to Fault Tree Analysis (FFTA) and illustrates its application through an automotive case study. The methodology is structured and straightforward to use. It is argued that the FFTA methodology integrates and interconnects well with other failure mode avoidance tools in common use in the automotive engineering design, such as FMEA and P-Diagram. FFTA shares the same platform for function based system analysis as other analysis tools and delivers complementary information
