This paper describes a novel method for analyzing, within one framework, several important types of risk associated with robotics and manufacturing applications. We build on the established technique of fault tree analysis to analyze the risk/benefits of the physical process, and extend the concept to build a dual structure for environmental costs/benefits. In addition, our framework includes the ability to perform financial cost-benefit analyses
