Lambda Predict: Standards Based Reliability Prediction Software Tool
MIL-217 * Bellcore/Telcordia * FIDES * NSWC Mechanical
actual product reliability data is not available, standards based reliability
prediction may be used to evaluate design feasibility, compare design
alternatives, identify potential failure areas, trade-off system design
factors and track reliability improvement. ReliaSoft's Lambda Predict
software tool supports failure rate predictions and mean time between
failure predictions (MTBF predictions) based on the
prediction standards, including
MIL-HDBK-217 predictions, Bellcore predictions, Telcordia predictions, FIDES predictions and NSWC Mechanical predictions.
Lambda Predict makes it easy to build system configurations for analysis based on the MIL-HDBK-217-F (MIL-217), Bellcore/Telcordia, FIDES or NSWC Mechanical reliability prediction standards. The software provides a complete array of calculated results for your analyses (failure rate predictions, MTBF predictions, etc.) along with graphical charts and customizable reports. Lambda Predict offers a full set of supporting tools, including a reliability allocation utility, derating analysis and the ability to transfer and manage your data via flexible import/export utilities. The software also provides exclusive access to the PartLibraries.org website portal, which allows users to search and import parts data from MIL-M-38510, EPRD-97 or NPRD-95 (free to all users) as well as more than 300,000 specific commercial electronic components (yearly subscription required).
With integration into the Synthesis Platform, analyses are now stored in a centralized database that supports simultaneous access by multiple users and shares relevant reliability information between Synthesis-enabled software tools. For enterprise-level repositories, both Microsoft SQL Server® and Oracle® are supported.
ReliaSoft offers a two-day training course that introduces the subject of standards based reliability prediction. The seminar provides hands-on training in the use of the Lambda Predict software tool for building and analyzing system configurations in accordance with a published reliability prediction standard, with emphasis on MIL-HDBK-217F predictions, Bellcore predictions, Telcordia predictions, FIDES predictions and NSWC Mechanical predictions.
Applications and Benefits
ReliaSoft's Lambda Predict software provides a comprehensive platform for building and analyzing systems in accordance with published reliability prediction standards. Some of the many applications for using standards based reliability prediction techniques and Lambda Predict include the ability to:
- Obtain an initial indication of whether a design will be able to meet reliability objectives and identify potential problem areas early in development.
- Compare design alternatives and/or trade-off system design factors.
- Consider environmental and other stress factors that have a significant impact on system performance yet may otherwise be overlooked.
