One of the most critical environments is in aerospace. Clearly, aircraft operators will err on the side of caution when it comes to dealing with faults, and as a consequence any problem can be punitive. A survey of the aircraft industry, conducted by test service company Copernicus Technology, showed the major consequences of NFF were: repeat occurrences; cost in man-hours; repair costs; downtime; flight cancellations; and overall financial impact.
