Event Tree Analysis

Event trees in the process and energy industries

​This seven minute video describes the topic of Event Tree Analysis (ETA); It is an example of inductive analysis. The video uses the same logical and mathematical techniques as Fault Tree Analysis. However, whereas a fault tree analyzes how an undesirable top event may occur, an event tree considers the impact of the failure of a particular component or item in the system, and works out the effect such a failure will have on the overall system risk or reliability. Event trees use an inductive approach, whereas fault trees are deductive.
