The potential catastrophic results of a public transportation failure require system inspection and diagnostic techniques of the highest order. These techniques must provide the required safety without significantly degrading reliability. A failure modes and effects analysis of the operational circuits of the dual-mode transportation system and of the inspection and diagnostic equipment is presented as a method for systematically analyzing the effects on system reliability and safety. The paper presents and discusses specific inspection and diagnositc schemes that should be considered during the development of a dual-mode transportation system. /Auther/
