Our reliability engineering studies are customized to fit our customer’s needs. Primary methodologies:

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) per procedures we develop specifically for each client and project. Our FMEA procedures comply with the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) standard SAE ARP 5580.

Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) illustrates the combinations of failures that cause an undesired Top Event. We develop our FTAs as either qualitative or quantitative.

  • Qualitative FTAs are used to evaluate safety or hazard events to determine root and contributing causes. Mitigations are targeted to reduce the probability of a negative event occurring.
  • Quantitative FTAs are developed to calculate system reliability, availability or other more complex results. User specified system run times and Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) data are developed.
    Results provide the data needed to make operational changes, plan for system upgrades/replacements, as well as focus maintenance dollars where they achieve the highest return.
