Fault tree analysis is one of the most widely used methods of system reliability analysis. It is a formal deductive procedure to determine the various combinations of component level failures that could result in the occurrence of specified "undesired events" at the system level.

This course covers fault tree construction, including symbols used in the construction. The logical top-down method of construction is explained and limitations of the approach are presented. The course concludes with an example fault tree construction using a real-world scenario of a hot water tank rupture.
