The fundamental cause of a failure may include:

  • Design Deficiencies
  • Improper Manufacturing
  • Material Imperfections
  • Errors in Installation or Repair
  • Inadequate Inspection or Quality Control
  • Inadequate Maintenance, And
  • Improper Operation (Service Conditions or Unforeseen Changes in Service)

Only when all the issues are assessed is it possible to conclude why a component or system failed and if the failure may have been preventable.
