Should reliability prediction be part of your reliability plan?
Join Carl and Fred as they discuss the controversial subject of reliability prediction. The discussion centers around the value of reliability prediction and whether or not it should be part of a reliability plan.
Some of the discussion points include:
- reliability prediction often depends on outdated manuals and guides.
- reliability prediction can obscure needed reliability tasks when the predictions are without sufficient merit.
- initial reliability predictions can be integrated with system reliability models to provide the reliability-wise mathematics.
- initial reliability predictions should be updated with more objective data when available.
- don’t use reliability predictions unless required or unless you have substantial and credible information supporting the analysis.
- If reliability predictions are required, be sure to advise the customer of the limitations and assumptions.
