A fault tree creates a visual record of a system that shows the logical relationships between events and causes lead that lead to failure. It helps others quickly understand the results of your analysis and pinpoint weaknesses in the design and identify errors.
A fault tree diagram will help prioritize issues to fix that contribute to a failure.
In many ways, the fault tree diagram creates the foundation for any further analysis and evaluation.
For example, when changes or upgrades are made to the system, you already have a set of steps to evaluate for possible effects and changes.
You can use a fault tree diagram to help you design quality tests and maintenance procedures.
