Reliability Data

Nonelectronic Parts Reliability Data – NPRD-2016 

The 2016 Edition of the Nonelectronic Parts Reliability Data publication (NPRD-2016) presents field failure rate data on a wide variety of electrical assemblies and electromechanical/mechanical parts and assemblies. Compared to its predecessor NPRD-2011 publication, NPRD-2016 adds 138,000 new parts and over 370 billion part hours, representing approximately a 400% increase in content. The expanded part types and data in NPRD-2016 cover ground, airborne and naval environments.

Reliability Tools

System Reliability Toolkit-V

This fifth toolkit in the popular series developed by Quanterion reflects the updated focus in RMQSI. Several of the same Quanterion staff members have been involved in all five titles in the series. Over 30 new topics have been added, and several others updated, with a minimum removal of topics from the “System Reliability Toolkit.” In addition, Appendices have been added stressing the practical application of the document’s practices throughout a program’s life.
