Just want to clarify Failure Definition and Scoring Criteria is based on the causes of failure or on the end result. For instance if it a system fails due to an operator fault which results in a Mission Abort failure during Reliability Demonstration (RD). Do we consider this failure chargeable? I just want to sentence these kind of failures fairly because the supplier argue that despite the end result is Mission Abort or Mission Affecting, the root cause is due to human error and not because of design or quality deficiency. Please advise. Thanks
