Create Fault Tree Diagram on Mac

Here are full details on how to create a fault tree analysis diagram on Mac. Built-in shapes with connection points and text boxes, free templates and easy formatting tools make everything as clear as crystal and as simple as pie.

You begin by defining the top event (or failure). Then you can use event and gate shapes to illustrate, top-down, the process that might lead to the failure. Once you complete the diagram, you can use it to identify ways to eliminate causes of the failure and to devise corrective measures for preventing such failures.
