What Software Are You Using?
Dianna and Fred discussing software tools used by reliability engineers: the good, the bad, and pitfalls.
Join Dianna and Fred as they discuss software tools used by reliability engineers.
- Different suites of software that they’ve used in the past and what they’re using today.
- Assumptions that need to be checked when using any software.
- When and how we can validate the results that we’re getting with any software solution, including a reality check!
- The types of support options available with different software solutions.
- How to think about any particular software as a tool: when to use it and when not to.
Let us know in the comments: What software are you using?
Enjoy an episode of Speaking of Reliability. Where you can join friends as they discuss reliability topics. Join us as we discuss topics ranging from design for reliability techniques to field data analysis approaches.
Dianna asks Fred what software he’s using now, which opens up a discussion about lots of options, from graphing calculators, open-source software, and software with licenses. They talk about how to responsibly use software, including checking for assumptions and calculation methods and ensuring the results are rooted in reality.

There is a package in python called reliability: https://reliability.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

Hi Lee, Wow – that looks like a great resource. It’s been around for just a few years (since 2019/2020) and was shared by a graduate student because he had troubles finding accessible reliability calculation solutions in what he was using (my issue, too). I now also understand there’s a cross-over relationship between R and Python, so I will keep both in mind as I start to get into these solutions. Thanks for sharing – will definitely look into this more! My best, Dianna
