exida - FMEDAx Tool
 

FMEDAx

Design next Generation Safety into Next Generation Automation Products

From First Generation to Next Generation

The FMEDA technique, which was developed in the late 1980’s by engineers now working for exida, is a staple of functional safety engineering because of its effectiveness predicting product safety and reliability metrics. It was created from a need to be able to account for the impact of diagnostics on safety and reliability performance.

The FMEDAx tool from exida embeds 30+ years of real-world experience and expertise from the team that pioneered the technique, to provide the world’s most accurate tool for safety & reliability predictions. It can support detailed hardware design of automation systems in a variety of applications (process industry, industrial equipment / machinery, robotics, medical devices, railway, mining, automotive, etc.).

FMEDAx can take you from schematic to identification of design weaknesses and accurate / defendable failure rate predictions quicker than conventional FMEDA tools; this reduces cost and enables new products to be brought to market faster.

exida has analyzed over 400 billion operating hours of field failure data to calibrate its component reliability data and FMEDAx tool in order to deliver the most accurate and realistic predictions for use in the development of IEC 61508 / ISO 26262 – compliant products.

FMEDAx Training Courses

exida has developed courses that will familiarize users with all facets of the ARCHx tool to ensure optimum usage for your next project.

FSE 247 E - Practical Electronic FMEDA with FMEDAx

The FMEDA method was invented to predict failure rates for each failure mode of a device, subsystem, or component. The ”Practical Electronic FMEDA with FMEDAx” course explains the FMEDA method, objectives, and output. In this course an example device FMEDA will be done showing the fundamental concepts including environmental profile selection, diagnostic coverage analysis, proof test coverage analysis, complex integrated circuit (IC) analysis, device packaging impact, and functional failure modes.
