Abstract

Dynamic Fault Trees (DFT) [15] [11] extend the classic fault tree methodology by allowing the modelling of complex system and component's behaviors and interactions. DFTs are experiencing a growing success among reliability engineers and therefore, the possible advantages of the DFTs were investigated using the case studies defined by NRG. This paper presents one of the case studies used for the investigation of DFT's advantages over the existing static fault tree methodologies. The case study presented in this paper assesses the influence of spare parts data on a Fault Tree (FT) model.
