This webcast will introduce attendees to fault and failure analysis approaches used in system development. We will concentrate on Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and explain how these analysis approaches can be used in Rational’s Rhapsody and DOORS tools.
What will the attendees learn?
- Basic aspects of safety and reliability analysis
- When FTA and FMEA are appropriate and when they are not
- How FTA can be used in Rhapsody
- How FMEA can be used in DOORS
