2.0. Event Tree Analysis

2.1. Event Tree Analysis Method

ETA is a very valuable system to analyze consequences as an outcome of a failure, undesired event, or an accidental event outlined in Chapter II. This is a binary-based, logical system. The binary decision diagram (BDD), discussed in Clause 5 of Chapter I, can be used to obtain outcome details. To get a general idea about ETA, refer to Fig. V/2.1-1.

2.1.1. What is an Event Tree Analysis?

ETA is an inductive, forward logic approach in reliability engineering. It is a graphical representation of a logical model used to identify and quantify the possible outcome resulting from an initiating event, which has happened (or has not yet happened) on account of failure of a component, an undesired event, ...
