SCIO™-Fault-TreeFast and informal fault investigation.

The right tool for quantitative and qualitative fault tree analysis.


With SCIO™, products are developed and produced according to the customer's demands. SCIO™ is a product family with practical modules that fulfill a wide range of requirements and perform numerous tasks in engineering. The success of SCIO™ is especially due to the central database shared by all modules that makes knowledge management and the ability to reuse knowledge possible in the first place.

SCIO™-Fault-TreeCreative Debugging.

When it comes to investigating problems quickly and informally, SCIO™-Fault-Tree is the right tool for you. In a short time, the causes of problems can be investigated at any depth.
The graphical representation as a fault tree facilitates the understanding of cause and effect chains. In addition to the qualitative fault tree, SCIO™-Fault-Tree also performs a quantitative fault tree analysis.

Why SCIO™-Fault-Tree? Your advantages.
Creativity & Teamwork
  • The qualitative fault tree analysis is a method to analyse risks quickly and creatively with the help of fault trees.
  • The method can be used for preventive quality assurance, confirmation of a concept or to investigate acute problem cases.
  • Due to its simple and intuitive operation, fault tree analysis is very well suited for brainstorming and teamwork.
  • Cause and effect chains of problems are displayed in a graphical overview without being limited in the depth of cause.
  • Use fault tree analysis to prepare an FMEA.
  • Save time and effort: Create an FMEA directly from a fault tree.
Overview & Connections
  • The quantitative fault tree analysis visualizes complex system as well as indirect effect and function correlations from the point of view of faults.
  • The SCIO™ database provides you with the necessary structures to do this.
  • Evaluate the effects of failures on the overall system and calculate reliability indicators (non-availability).
  • Use defect networks built in quantitative analysis as the basis for automatically entering defect sequences from top FMEAs and defect causes from sub-FMEAs in the form.
Up-to-date & Effective
  • Easy to use search tools allow you to brainstorm using existing knowledge from the SCIO™ database.
  • The central database automatically provides data for preparing and supplementing risk analyses via the fault tree analysis.
  • This ensures effective and economical teamwork across departments.
  • Knowledge is passed on: From fault trees, faults, causes and consequences are transferred to an FMEA form.
  • The quantitative fault tree analysis uses system structures that are provided via the database.
  • You can use data that is always up to date without any effort.
