• Reliability prediction models provide MTBF point estimates. Model inputs include base component failure rates, environmental, quality, and stress factors.
  • Base failure rates use failure data from multiple sources, including industry field data, research lab test results, and government labs.
  • Environmental, quality and stress factors may differ from field conditions.
  • Predictions assume a constant failure rate which does not account for failures due to early life quality issues or wearout phenomena.
