Details of the Reliability Growth and Reliability Allocation modules
Reliability Allocation is usually applied during the design stages of a system. It uses methods to assign reliability targets to sub-systems and equipments based on a system reliability goal. A Reliability Allocation project may recommend redundancy configurations to meet reliability targets as well as assigning reliability requirements of individual sub-systems and equipments.
The Reliability Allocation Module in Reliability Workbench allows a system hierarchy to be easily constructed and analyzed.
Reliability growth identifies trends of increasing or decreasing reliability in a system so that appropriate action can be taken.
The Reliability Growth module of Reliability Workbench analyzes test data by calculating scale and shape parameters defining a growth curve to fit the data. The scale and shape parameters can be used to calculate Failure Intensity, Mean Time to Failure (MTTF) or Unreliability.
