Human Factors Analysis has realistic and profound significance to improve the quality and reliability of software. However, there is little research on the methods applied in software engineering to analyze human error. This paper proposes a human factors analysis method, which applies the fault tree analysis method to seek the human factors causing software accidents. Fault tree analysis method brings great flexibility and it is a graph deduction, which makes it easier to find the critical links of human errors.
