Error/Slip -> (Specification-Issue) -> Specification-Defect -> Fault/Bug/System Defect -> Malfunction
1. Severity: a Malfunction can have any Level of severity or Impact from catastrophically permanent destruction, to hardly noticeable variability of information or timing. It all Depends-On the nature of the specification, which is violated. Consequently, to really understand a Malfunction, a notion of severity of Impact needs to be added. This Impact all Depends-On the environment impacted at the time of Malfunction.
