Efficient Inference on Generalized Fault Diagrams
Ross Shachter, Leonard Bertrand
The generalized fault diagram, a data structure for failure analysis based on the influence diagram, is defined. Unlike the fault tree, this structure allows for dependence among the basic events and replicated logical elements. A heuristic procedure is developed for efficient processing of these structures.
