The Analysis process may crash unexpectedly due to a bug in the Ingest Tool code or an unexpected feature in the content.  Be sure to take a screenshot of the displayed error message and send to the BDPL Manager via Slack.  In many cases, it may be possible to simply rerun the Analysis process after the error has been addressed, though in some cases, the BDPL manager may have to perform a manual intervention.
