Abstract: This article presents a new algorithm that we have developed to find the minimal cut-sets of a coherent fault tree. The model presented is based on Petri nets. We also show that for a large fault tree, we are faced with the complexity problem. We suggest the use of place fusion as well as a methodology that can allow us to overcome this difficulty.
Keywords: Petri nets, fault diagnosis, fault trees, maintenance trees, modularization.
