How Do I Do MTBF Testing?
Speaker: Chris Jackson
First thing … the MTBF is not a reliability metric (there are other webinars that explain why!) But there are many times when (for reasons good and bad) we need to test something to see how often it fails. This can help us work out how many spare parts we need, how many maintainers and technicians we need to employ, and lots of other really useful (typically logistic) considerations. We sometimes also need to be able to work out if a product meets an MTBF requirement. But when we do … we need to take into all sorts of statistical considerations like producer’s risk, consumer’s risk, and discrimination ratio. Shouldn’t the requirement be the requirement? If you want to learn more about MTBF testing and how it might (or might not) work … then join us for this webinar.
