The experience that is gained from performing a multitude of analysis activities over the course of decades has allowed us to apply our in-depth understanding of specific processes, including the identification of specific tasks that can be simplified and/or automated to reduce the necessary time and resources for such processes. We have developed a collection of software tools to provide the desired simplification, while also incorporating additional insights, rules of thumb and numerous other practical application tips.
We offer a variety of affordable software tools to improve the productivity of your organization.
The 2016 Edition of the Nonelectronic Part Reliability Data publication (NPRD-2016) presents 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.
This document contains reliability data on both commercial and military electronic components for use in reliability analyses. It contains failure rate data on integrated circuits, discrete semiconductors (diodes, transistors, optoelectronic devices), resistors, capacitors, and inductors/transformers, all of which were obtained from the field usage of electronic components.
FMD-2016 Databook contains field failure mode and mechanism distribution data on a variety of electrical, mechanical, and electromechanical parts and assemblies. This data can be used to assist in the performance of reliability analyses and assessments such as Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA).
The Reliability Online Automated Databook System (ROADS) is a subscription service that provides customized access to any or all of the following databooks: NPRD, FMD, EPRD. The ROADS databooks will be updated periodically (as new data warrants) and configuration controlled, so that the presented data is always traceable to a specific version of a hard copy databook.
This interactive software tool provides efficient search and retrieval of all information contained in the EPRD, NPRD, and FMD hard copy products. Containing a built-in search engine, information may be searched on part number, part types, manufacturer, and National Stock Number (NSN). Additional filters are available to specify application environment and quality levels.
This interactive software tool provides access to all the information contained in the individual sections of the EPRD, NPRD, and FMD hard copy products. Within each individual section, the tool provides basic search and browsing capabilities that allow for locating the information of interest. Individual pages of interest can be printed for record keeping purposes or for report generation as needed.
217Plus™:2015 is the latest iteration of the popular electronic reliability prediction tool that includes several new and updated models in addition to a number of enhanced capabilities.
The Warranty Calculator planning and analysis tool provides automated calculations and comparisons for ten different warranty types in common use. The tool also includes data, information and references that provide further guidance for over 30 additional warranty types.
This MS Excel®-based spreadsheet spreadsheet tool determines if a design satisfies the derating requirements of NAVSEA SD-18 Part Requirement and Application Guide based on part-type ID, rating and application data.
Quanterion Solutions’ Stress-Derating Spreadsheet Calculator – ECSS-Q-ST-30-11C Revision 1 Derating Standard is an Excel®-based software tool that allows the user to easily determine if a design is in compliance with the derating guidelines presented in the European Cooperation for Space Standardization document, ECSS-Q-ST-30-11C Rev 1 – Derating – EEE components (4 October 2011).
QuART is an automated version of the popular Reliability “Toolkit” series that includes a number of analysis tools from predictions and design analyses to test planning and statistical analysis of failure data.
Evaluate your organization’s reliability program by walking through Quanterion’s RASTER tool, a free online resources that provides recommendations to improve your approach to reliability.
This product is intended to be an aid to the decision-making process that can be used to justify (or not) the upfront financial investment needed to perform root cause failure analysis and CA for specific failure incidents and compare them to the savings that may be achieved over the long term by virtue of the improved reliability of the system, product, assembly, component, part or process.
Quanterion Solutions Incorporated has developed the Optimized Reliability Requirements and Cost Analysis (OR2CA) tool for one purpose: to present a methodology that develops contractual reliability requirements that are fully aligned with stated End-User Operational Reliability needs and expectations based on all of the categories of root failure cause that contribute to potential mission loss or degradation.
This MS Excel Workbook was developed as a supplementary tool in support of the paper/presentation entitled “Weibays Testing: What is the Impact if Assumed Beta is Incorrect?” by David Nicholls and Paul Lein of Quanterion Solutions Incorporated, and presented at the 2009 Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium, 26-30 January 2009 in Fort Worth, TX. The paper/presentation and the spreadsheet are limited in scope to Weibays zero-failure and sudden-death test plans.
