exida Recorded Webinars

Comparing Failure Rate Data

Recording Date: July 2014

This webinar will show the results of a set of recent failure rate data comparisons between exida FMEDA results and field failure data from the process industries. A number of different categories of comparisons were done, including transmitters, valves, actuators, and solenoid valves. Results from DOW and OREDA are directly compared against FMEDA results.

It is essential that any predictive failure technique like FMEDA be calibrated via actual field failure results. The technique used by exida to accomplish this calibration will be described along with examples of lessons learned after ten years of comparisons.

This webinar will help any engineer doing SIF verification calculations to understand how to pick failure rate data.
