DFTCalc: A tool for efficient fault tree analysis. Effective risk management is a key to ensure that our nuclear power plants, medical equipment, and power grids are dependable; and it is often required by law. Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) is a widely used methodology here, computing important dependability measures like system reliability. This paper presents DFTCalc, a powerful tool for FTA, providing (1) efficient fault tree modelling via compact representations; (2) effective analysis, allowing a wide range of dependability properties to be analysed (3) efficient analysis, via state-of-the-art stochastic techniques; and (4) a flexible and extensible framework, where gates can easily be changed or added. Technically, DFTCalc is realised via stochastic model checking, an innovative technique offering a wide plethora of powerful analysis techniques, including aggressive compression techniques to keep the underlying state space small.
