Authors: Dobrivoje Ćatić, Milan Vasić, Jasna Glišović
Abstract: Using the Fault Tree Analysis method - FTA, an analysis of the potential failure modes of the elements of the crop sprayer pump Comet BP 105 was carried out in this paper. In order to conduct a detailed analysis of the causes and failure modes of a pump, it is necessary to know the structure, the way of operating and the interrelationship of the constituent elements. Based on the collected data, the fault tree of the considered object was formed. In this way, the cause-and-effect relationship between failures of structural entities of different levels of affiliation is established. In conclusion of the paper, the importance of applying the fault tree analysis to improve the efficiency of the existing systems and the quality in the development of similar design solutions is pointed out.
