Realistic Failure Rate Data – the Calibrated FMEDA™

Recording Date: May 2018

Reliability Engineers know that the ultimate source of realistic failure rate data is actual field failure data from a similar environment. There is even strong language in the new IEC 61511 standard requiring field failure based numbers. In this webinar, different methods used to estimate and predict failure rates are explained. A combination method using all data, called the Calibrated FMEDA™, has been developed which not only predicts failure rates based on field failure data but includes proof test coverage as well.
