λ PREDICT


MIL-217 * Bellcore/Telcordia * FIDES * NSWC Mechanical

When actual product reliability data is not available, standards based reliability prediction may be used to evaluate design feasibility, compare design alternatives, identify potential failure areas, trade-off system design factors and track reliability improvement.

ReliaSoft's Lambda Predict facilitates failure rate and MTBF predictions based on the major reliability prediction standards. The software also offers reliability allocation, derating analysis and a full set of supporting tools.

Lambda Predict is a part of theSynthesis Platform®.
