Today’s commercial enterprises depend more than ever before on the quality of their products and consequently on their reputation for manufacturing such high-quality products. As a result, the risks associated with the cost of poor quality (COPQ) and its detrimental impact on a business’s performance must be eliminated as early in a product’s lifecycle as possible.
Relyence supplies reliability engineers, project managers, and quality control professionals with comprehensive software tools to effectively evaluate reliability standards for electronics, mechanical systems, processes, and services. With Relyence software, engineers are able to recognize and address failures and risk with speed and efficiency. As a result, they can take the necessary action to meet and exceed reliability and quality objectives.
Reliability Analysis Software for the Commercial Industry
The proliferation of smart technology, the Internet of Things (IoT), and rising consumer expectations mean that electronic component failure analysis must be carried out with more accuracy and ever-tighter deadlines. To meet the needs of the commercial industry, Relyence software is designed to be the preferred electronic component failure analysis software used by reliability and quality engineers.
With Relyence, you get complete mean time between failures (MTBF) analysis that’s supported by fast, efficient data importing and a powerful calculation engine so that your predictions are timely, accurate, and comprehensive. That way, problems are recognized early, preventative measures can be taken, and costly errors like product recalls and expensive warranty issues can be avoided.
Tools for All of Your Reliability Analysis Needs
All businesses in the commercial industry depend on reliability analysis software tools to ensure their production processes are as efficient, safe, and compliant as possible. Relyence offers products designed to work on their own or as an integrated suite — known as the Relyence Studio — to help you meet these goals and overcome common industry challenges. Our analytic tools include:
- Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA): Relyence FMEA software allows you to detect modes of failure in your products early in their life cycle. Since your business’ reputation lies in your products’ quality, FMEA is an invaluable tool in your manufacturing practices.
- Failure Reporting, Analysis and Corrective Action Software (FRACAS): With Relyence FRACAS/CAPA, you can track customer complaints, failure reports, safety and compliance crises, audit reports, and the corrective actions taken to address these issues in one easy-to-use program.
- Fault Tree Analysis (FTA): Every manufacturing process has many potential modes of failure. Using Relyence Fault Tree, you can model the probability of these high-risk events using a proven probability engine.
- Reliability Block Diagram Analysis (RBD): You can model complex systems — including ones that incorporate redundancy — using Relyence RBD’s powerful mathematics engine. With the software’s intuitive interface, it’s easy to discover how each component of your manufacturing processes contributes to the success of your entire system.
- Reliability Prediction: Analyze your equipment, products, and processes to predict their expected rates of failure using Relyence Reliability Prediction software. This highly precise tool supports many common MTBF analysis standards.
- Weibull Analysis: Uncover lifecycle trends and critical failure data with Relyence Weibull, a major player in determining your product warranty terms and other vital specifications.
- Accelerated Life Testing (ALT) Analysis: Fully evaluate stress data obtained from accelerated life tests with Relyence ALT in order to assess how your product will perform over its lifetime.
Commercial Reliability Standards and Requirements
In order for reliability analysis to be complete, the entire process must meet all applicable industry standards and requirements. For commercial enterprises, the following standards are some of the most important:
- Telcordia: Telcordia SR-332 provides hardware and electronic device reliability prediction procedures that were developed with support and input from major commercial organizations. Designed initially for use in the Telecom industry, this reliability prediction standard is used throughout an array of commercial industries due to its wide applicability.
- MIL-HDBK-217: MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2 and prior editions are broadly accepted and widely used standards for reliability prediction analysis. Through developed for use in the defense and military sectors, it is the most commonly used reliability prediction standard across all industries. Due to its long history and breadth of electronic devices supported, it remains the standard for MTBF and failure rate prediction analyses. Almost all other prediction standards available today are based on MIL-HDBK-217.
- SAE J1739 & ARP5580: These Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) FMEA guidelines were developed for the automotive industry in conjunction with DaimlerChrysler Corporation, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corporation. The SAE FMEA standard and its RPN (Risk Priority Number) approach to risk assessment is accepted across many commercial industries conducting failure mode and effects analyses.
- AIAG & VDA: The FMEA Handbook, published by the AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) and VDA (Verband der Automobilindustrie, or the German Association of the Automotive Industry), defines the Action Priority approach for risk assessment and is accepted throughout commercial industries worldwide.
- ISO and ANSI: ISO 9001 and related quality standards such as ISO/TS 16949, and ISO 14001 are some of the standards most commonly accepted and adhered to in the commercial industry sector. ANSI standards, such as ANSI/VITA 51.1, provide guidelines for reliability and quality measures.
- Six Sigma: Six Sigma quality practices and procedures are often used in commercial organizations to provide effective and proven quality control measures.
Designed to work across all of the above standards, Relyence’s reliability analysis software can consider multiple standards simultaneously so that your analysis models are always accurate and fully compliant with your commercial organization’s specific needs.
