Reliability Engineering Terms – Fault Tree Analysis

September 9th, 2021

What is Fault Tree Analysis?
Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) is a “top down” assessment of how a product or system failure (or other “undesired event”) can occur based on the behavior of lower-level functions, assemblies, parts, software, and human behavior.  The undesired event is evaluated through a set of intermediary fault states that, if present, would…  Read More

Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
FMECAs and FTAs are popular methods for determining the impact of failures on the product or system. This module focuses on these two popular approaches to system logic analysis. The discussion will begin with a discussion of the MIL-STD-1629 approach…  Read More

Open Training – Fall 2021 Session: Weibull Analysis
Why do you need to take this course?
Weibull analysis is the starting point to problem-solving for most production reliability and maintainability issues. If you are an engineer, manager or engineering student, you will need to understand basic failure distributions, reliability engineering math, analyses, and…  Read More

Reliability Engineering Terms – Weibull Analysis

August 26th, 2021

What is Weibull Analysis?
Weibull Analysis is a statistical analysis that is used to determine reliability characteristics and trends from field and/or test failure data. It allows decisions to be made based on a limited amount of data. The Weibull distribution can be fit to datasets exhibiting an increasing, decreasing, or constant failure rate, a unique…  Read More
