Threat/Anomaly Mitigation Decision-Making Process

Better guidance is needed for deciding when the combined effects of two or more threats and the associated anomalies create a higher probability of failure than the individual threats/anomalies themselves. While satisfactory models exist for calculating the effects on pressure-carrying capacity of individual types of anomalies (e.g., corrosion-caused metal loss, cracks, gouges, plain dents), better guidance is needed regarding how to assess the effects of combined threats/anomalies.
