Indeed, internal and external sources can be hardly dealt with by a common methodological approach. 3 Classifications vs Field Data Analysis Field data on MRFs can be derived from both incident files and component event files. In order to sort and analyze the relevant data, appropriate classifications are needed which are not necessarily coincident. In fact, an incident description needs "a method for logically dissecting multiple component unavailability scenarios into individual -TI- component unavailabilities" (8), in order to identify related failures.
