The FMEDA process is a bottom-up approach where component failure rates and failure modes are mapped into device level failure modes resulting in a potentially good prediction of the device failure rate for each device failure mode. An FMEDA can also potentially predict the Useful Life of a device. However, no FMEDA can produce realistic metrics without a complete and strong component reliability database. This webinar discusses the key attributes of a component reliability database and shows examples of several component metrics. This webinar is important for anyone performing FMEDA analysis and those contracting FMEDA analysis.
