 Reliability is always going to be of concern to your customers. A basic reliability MTBF prediction of your system can be made by component count, but we can add specific environmental and stress factors in to give a more accurate reliability calculation. In addition, reliability analysis using our software can integrate data from reliability trials and field statistics. These can be weighted according to their statistical significance, so that you have the best overall reliability data for your customer.MTBF and Failure Rate Data, are calculated according to commonly used models derived for both military and commercial objectives. They include n+1 redundant rules and field statistics.

Bellcore (Telecordia) - This commercial reliability model is based on the internationally recognised Bellcore Standard used to calculate the reliability of electronic equipment.

MIL 217 - The military based standard MIL-HDBK-217F is ideal for a reliability project that is "mission critical", in either commercial or military terms.
