In this paper the comparison of HERMES and THERP will be finalised by comparing not only the overall probabilistic results, but by analysing in detail the different success and failure paths of the human error event tree and of the dynamic event tree generated by DYLAM implementing HERMES approach. The detailed comparison gives the floor for a more general and critical comparison of classic and dynamic approaches concerning human reliability analysis. In addition some new results relating to the unique possibility offered by HERMES to consider the case of false alarms will be presented.
