FTA UEFI Bootloader Compilation Issue

FTA UEFI Bootloader Compilation Issue



Last Major Update 

MARCH 10, 2016

 

Introduction

Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) uses tree structures to decompose system level failures into combinations of lower-level events, and Boolean gates to model their interactions. The objective of this debug FTA example is to help troubleshoot and identify issue related to UEFI Booloader Compilation and resolve it effectively. 

User often encounter issue when checking out the code and successfully compile the UEFI bootloader code. This FTA summarizes the multiple common root causes of this problem.


Fault Tree Analysis Diagram & Table

The FTA example : FTA_UEFI_Bootloader_Compilation_Issue consists of a FTA diagram and table used to debug and root cause the UEFI Bootloader compilation issue. In the FTA diagram, multiple hypothesis are made based on the failure symptom as described. For each of the hypothesis, it can have second level or up to third level suspects. The FTA diagram will then be converted into a table format to proper keep track of the debug progress. In the FTA table, for every suspect listed , it needs to have some action items to be performed to verify it together with some additional category information to be filled in such as Owner, Target completion date, status/Results, Possible Next Step and Priority level.
