›FADAT 2013, Failure, Test & Operations Data Workshop
FADAT is the “Failure, Test and Operations Data” Workshop. In this edition, we will assess the progress in system life cycle failure data utilisation since our previous workshop held in 2011. We will explore the evolution, practical benefits, and applications in projects of failure databases (ARTS, MUST, MAT€D,..), RAMS failure data tools (RIDE, CFDA), RAMS analyses (Human Dependability), and RAMS processes within the European Space Agency (ESA) and across the European space industry.
In addition, this year’s workshop theme focuses on how nominal operational performance data could be used as a feedback to design and development for the enhancement of dependability and safety. FADAT 2013 aims at preparing the ground for a more effective data feedback process for the benefit of all ESA projects fostering new cooperation between design, MAIT, and in-orbit operations.
