Track the trends in your system
During testing of new products, reliability detractors are identified and corrective actions implemented. The improving reliability can be measured through reliability growth analysis supporting the aim of reaching the reliability goal.
The Reliability Growth module of Reliability Workbench™ analyzes test data by calculating scale and shape parameters, which can then be used to calculate failure intensity, Mean Time to Failure (MTTF), or Unreliability at an arbitrary time. By looking at the growth curve, you can quickly identify improving or worsening trends in reliability in a system.
