Dec. 4, 2017
Association for the Study of Failure
In June of this year, 2017, Association for Study of Failure (ASF) inherited operation of "Failure Knowledge Database (FKDB)" from Hatamura Institute for the Advancement of Technology. This takeover copied FKDB data from sozogaku.com to the homepage area of shippai.org.
The same data, currently, resides on the sozogaku.com server to meet the needs of other organizations, e.g., wikipedia.org, with plenty of links to sozogaku.com addresses. The contents on the sozogaku.com pages will gradually turn into links to the same data on shippai.org server.
FKDB started as national efforts originating from one of the proposals in "Report by Special Study Group for Active Use of Failure Knowledge - for active use of failure experience (Japanese version here)" and Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) promoted "Development of Database with Structured Knowledge, Data and so Gained through Experiencing Failure" and the database went public in March, 2005. JST maintained the database and kept it public until it terminated its service in March of 2011.
ASF Chairperson, Hatamura, who was the overall supervisor of this project, then took over the database so that this asset of high value to the society is not lost and made it public on his business, Hatamura Institute for the Advancement of Technology, homepage. Now, our association, ASF decided to accept the operation of the database.
ASF will always keep an entrance to the database interface on its top page at all time, and further add functions of text search and new case introductions.
ASF is now inviting failure case descriptions from its members with the application procedure below:
We hope that this FKDB continues to serve the society, grow, develop, and continue to contribute in preventing accidents and mitigating severity of disasters.
