Abstract:Big industries, such as the nuclear [1], aerospace [2] and chemical [3] engineering industries, use risk analysis to identify the system’s causes of failures and the systems weaknesses to ensure that their operations are conducted safe and reliable. In order to identify, analyse and prioritize such risks, fault tree analysis can be used. There is already a wide number of techniques available to analyse fault trees but there is a lack of sophisticated presentations of the results of such fault tree analysis techniques. Consequently, results are hard to interpret and the presentations of those results are hardly intuitive. The result of this project is a stand-alone tool that visualizes minimal cut sets in an intuitive and appealing manner. The visualization is realized with the use of common graph types, intuitive design principles and interaction techniques.
