Knowledge of these latent failure
types could also be used as the basis for the improvement and design of incident reporting systems.
can introduce new failure modes or bring into play latent failure
The result is either immediate damage, or catastrophic failure of the device, but most often results as a latent failure
that ultimately causes the device to fail.
If a latent failure
occurs after the product is established in its market it is still possible to judge the effect of further failures and make the appropriate decision.
Ground loops can cause latent failure
or immediate destruction of serial cards and other system components.
At the same time we are rebuilding an entire subway tunnel, we are fighting back against latent failures
unseen failures brought on by the storm that are waiting to happen and reduced lifespan of components system wide.
ceramic chip capacitors) or solder joints (such as BGA balls) that may not be caught during product testing, but manifest themselves as latent failures
in the field.
It is essential that latent failures
in systems are addressed as a priority, including the problems germane to most of our state health institutions, namely understaffing, ageing infrastructure, overcrowding, inadequate remuneration and lack of supervision.
Previously, there were no procedures to adequately inspect the 14th stage vanes in order to detect latent failures
Patankar (aviation science, Saint Louis University) looks at moral and ethical attitudes underlying the types of decisions that perpetuate many of the latent failures
in safety-critical systems.
They said: ``We observed many latent failures
, `accidents waiting to happen' in this study.
According to human error expert James Reason, latent failures
are the delayed-action consequences of decisions taken in the upper echelons of the organization (the "blunt end"), such as:
