Abstract

The paper attempts to define the concept of learning from failures through feedback to design. This is demonstrated through case studies where analytical tools have been incorporated to facilitate problem structuring and analysis. We provide a framework on how to analyze case studies of learning from major disasters. We then provide examples of tools and techniques that are capable of analyzing the rare event of high impact. Keywords: learning from failures, design, feedback, fault tree analysis, reliability block diagrams.
