Optional Cost/SIF Design – Composite failure rates instead of generic failure rates

Recording Date: April 2017

This webinar will discuss best practices in SIF verification when the question arises when to use a composite failure rate instead of a generic failure rate for a set of possible devices. We will look at examples using exSILentia to compare the probability of failure on demand and the mean time to fail safe for the SIF.
