    Abstract

    Probabilistic risk analysis (PRA) is an essential part of safety management in safety-critical industries such as process industry, power production and transportation. PRA provides essential information for identifying weak- nesses in technological systems and optimizing the design, operation and maintenance of systems. When used in decision making, PRA must be carried out in a qualified manner and supported by appropriate computer codes. FinPSA is a software tool to support the main activities related to PRA through easy model creation, efficient and versatile analysis, good traceability, flexible reporting, and information exchange capabilities.
