217Plus™:2015, Notice 1 Calculator Tool
This tool facilitates the failure rate calculation of up to 10 hardware assemblies and 15 software assemblies, based on the component and system reliability models defined by Quanterion’s 217Plus™:2015, Notice 1 methodology. All models are detailed in the 2015, Notice 1 Handbook of 217Plus Reliability Prediction Models (HDBK-217Plus™:2015, Notice 1), available exclusively from Quanterion.
The 217Plus reliability calculator uses a common spreadsheet interface, meaning that time spent learning to use it is minimal.
Quanterion also provides product support to all registered users of the original 217Plus™ or 217Plus™:2015 Calculator.
Handbook-217Plus™: 2015, Notice 1
Quanterion’s Handbook-217Plus™: 2015, Notice 1 is a recommended guide to the calculator that includes detailed information on the models, the model development background, and associated reference tables and equations. It provides the user with an understanding of the models behind the math.
217Plus™:2015, Notice 1 is the latest revision to the popular 217Plus™ Handbook of Reliability Prediction Models, a modern reliability prediction methodology developed in part to overcome some of the perceived limitations of MIL-HDBK-217.
Available exclusively through Quanterion, 217Plus™:2015, Notice 1 replaces the original software reliability prediction model with the Neufelder Model for software reliability prediction.
The “Handbook-217Plus™: 2015, Notice 1” is an upgrade of the original 217Plus methodology from 2006. It contains all the 2015 component models and replaces the original software reliability prediction model with the Neufelder Model for software reliability prediction. To take full advantage of the Neufelder Model within “217Plus™:2015, Notice 1,” you will need to purchase a copy of IEEE Standard 1633-2016 “IEEE Recommended Practice on Software Reliability” from IEEE or an authorized distributor (Quanterion does not sell IEEE Standard 1633-2016).
Quanterion also offers an online training video to familiarize reliability practitioners with the original RIAC 217Plus™ electronics reliability prediction methodology (2006 version). Click on the link above to learn more about this training.
NOTE 1: If you currently own Quanterion’s “217Plus™:2015 Handbook” and/or calculator, and you do not need to predict software reliability, then you do not need to update to “217Plus™:2015, Notice 1.”
