When a parallel manipulator suffers from failures, its performance can be significantly affected. Thus, fault tolerance is essential for task-critical applications or applications in which maintenance is hard to implement. In this paper, we consider three types of common strut failures corresponding to stuck joints, unactuated actuators, or the complete loss of struts, respectively. The impacts of different failures on the kinematics of a manipulator are examined, and the task space redundancy and kinematic redundancies are used to help overcome these failures. In addition, local measures of fault tolerance and their properties are analyzed. These measures can be helpful in architecture design and path planning
