Calibrated Component Database vs. Warranty data: What’s the difference?

Recording Date: May 2019

For decades manufacturers have been using their customer return data to estimate failure rates for their products. exida also uses this data but only for FMEDA comparison and validation purposes. 

This webinar will show the result of several of our recent warranty failure calculations and the comparison to the corresponding FMEDA prediction for the same product. We will review how the data is useful for calibrating a component database, the importance of a calibrated FMEDA component database and why warranty data is not a useful method for realistic failure rates used for safety verification calculations.
