Title Hazard criticality analysis.
Bibliographic information June 1979, p.791-796. Illus. 18 ref.
Abstract Introduction, in the form of a literature survey, to a method of analysis enabling designers to predict the critical areas which may cause major reliability problems: preparation of the analysis to establish ground rules, system description, potential failure mode analysis, criticality categorisation, loss frequency probability and critical item list. A typical criticality analysis, a safety analysis and a fault-tree analysis are described, followed by considerations on systematic fault finding, failure assessment and data collection.
