Failure Recovery, Part 1
Discipline: Environmental Control/Life Support
This two-part course was geared for engineers. The first part of the course dealt with a description of the tools and processes involved in failure recovery, and the second part was an exercise in which teams prepared and critiqued recovery plans based on sample problems. The course covered the techniques for identifying and taking necessary actions during hardware failure. Information included generating a problem resolution team, preparing fault trees, constructing an investigation plan, identifying root causes and corrective actions, and preparing a back-up plan. This class essentially covered everything that needs to be done when a failure occurs.
