The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission has organised a Human Factors Reliability Benchmark Exercise (HF-RBE) with the aim of examining the state of the art in human reliability modelling and assessment. The HF-RBE was organised around two study cases : (1) analysis of routine functional Test & Maintenance (T&M) procedures with the aim of assessing the probability of test induced failures, the probability of failures remaining unrevealed and the possibility of initiating transients through errors performed in the test; (2) analysis of human actions during an operational transient with the aim of assessing the probability that the operators will correctly diagnose the malfunctions and take proper corrective action. This report contains the final summary reports produced by the participants in the exercise.
