Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)

Fault Tree Analysis is a deductive procedure used to determine the various combinations of failures and human errors that could cause supply chain disruptions at a system level. An FTA uses a general conclusion to determine specific causes of a supply chain disruption, following a top-down approach. Unlike event tree analyses which induce the consequences of an event, fault tree analyses deduce the causes of an event to identify the potential causes of supply chain failures before risks can materialize.
