STP616: Chapter 7—Cause and Effects Analysis

    Pages: 20    Published: Jan 1977


    Abstract

    The objective of a management system for cause and effects analysis is to provide identification as to the ways by which a specific event, called a top or undesired event, can be caused and to determine the effect(s) of such an event. In those cases for which the effect of the event is significant and is coupled with a relatively high probability of occurrence, thus introducing an intolerable level of risk (event effect times event probability), the further objective of the management system is to achieve a timely alteration of the design to reduce the risk level either by reducing the effect of the event's occurrence or by reducing the probability of its occurrence.
