From all of us at ReliaSoft... Happy Holidays!

Check Out This Month's Hot Topic

Quantitative Risk Analysis Using Simulation

In a previous issue of Reliability HotWire, we discussed how one can perform risk analysis by using fault trees to calculate the probability of occurrence of any severe system-level effect. The process involved building a fault tree in BlockSim from an effect that appeared in multiple FMEAs in Xfmea. In this article, we will take this risk analysis one step further by using the probability of occurrence of an effect as calculated by the fault tree to investigate the probability of observing other outcomes of interest. We will do this by taking advantage of the new integrated interface between the Synthesis versions of BlockSim and RENO. As we will see, the analysis performed in RENO will essentially resemble an event tree analysis that is commonly performed in safety engineering.
