Abstract : A computer program GRAFTED, 'GRAphical Fault Tree EDitor, has been written to simplify data entry and modification of component fault tree descriptions (FTD) used in military platform vulnerability/survivability analysis procedures. GRAFTED utilises a unique, graphical, screen based data entry procedure to define and display both individual system component parameters and their hierarchical relationship in the overall system FTD. The generated component and system FTD output is in a format which is directly readable by the MRL version of the General Vulnerability Assessment Model (GVAM) , computer programs. Although GRAFTED was specifically designed to generate FTDs for GVAM, it could be easily modified to accommodate data input formats and FTD output for assessment procedures which require user friendly data entry and graphical fault tree editing and visualisation.
