Quanterion Solutions Incorporated

About John Reade

Quanterion Solutions Incorporated, was formed with the mission to provide high quality QUANTitative engineering services to be used as critERION for critical decision making, hence the name Quanterion. Since its beginning in 2000, the company has expanded its technical capabilities beyond the original reliability, maintainability and quality to now also include knowledge management, software development/engineering, materials engineering, information technology and document management services. These technical capabilities are currently being applied in the defense, commercial, health care, energy and homeland defense markets.

Confidence Bounds on the Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) for a Time-Truncated Test

There is a long standing discussion on how best to calculate the lower and upper confidence bounds on the Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) for a time-truncated test (Type I Censoring) assuming that the times between failure are exponentially distributed (constant failure rate).  This Reliability Que discusses the use of the Chi-Square distribution for confidence…  Read More

Maintenance Planning with a Constant Failure Rate

This Reliability Que will discuss an example of how Weibull analysis qualitative results showing a constant failure rate affect the maintenance planning process. The qualitative results can be utilized to quantitatively drive the decision-making process in Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) programs.

RCM Basics

As defined in NAVAIR 00-25-403, “Guidelines for the Naval Aviation Reliability-Centered Maintenance Process”, RCM…  Read More
