Service life – MTBF calculations
Questions of reliability and the service life of products are particularly important of the failure of a device or module is connected with significant costs or if it poses a particular safety risk. In these areas, the demands on reliability – which is described as the ability of a product or system to fulfil its designated function faultlessly over a given time period (within the framework of predefined tolerances) – are particularly high.
This reliability can be quantified by, e.g.:
For electric systems, devices and modules, we offer the MTBF analysis in accordance with different international standards (EN/IEC 61709, MIL-HDBK-217, Siemens procedure SN 29500).
