Most Fault Tree Analyses can be carried out using
only these four symbols.
Events and Gates are not component parts of the system being analyzed. They are
symbols representing the logic of the analysis.

∆ = Critical characteristic which may effect safety, compliance with Gov. regulations, or require special controls.
SEV = Severity rating (1 to 10)
OCC = Occurrence frequency (1 to 10)
DET = Detection Rating (1 to 10)
RPN = Risk Priority Number (1 to 1000) = SEV * OCC * DET
RPN = SEV * OCC * DET
