Abstract : The aim of the report is to demonstrate another quantitative tool for system safety engineers performing hazard analysis. GERT failure mode analysis is presented, and shows good potential as a tool leading to hazard recognition. GERT is a means of handling stochastic networks with logical nodes. The GERT analysis is finished when the system is represented by an equivalent one-branch function yielding the sytem's failure or success probabilities as time dependent probabilities. (Author)
