Reliability Analysis

PHIMECA Engineering assists its customers for the estimation and validation of the reliability.

The different reliability analyses is able to design and proportion reliable and robust products while optimizing the costs and the development times.

Predicted reliability

To optimize the performances of a system by the risk identification, the occurrence probabilities evaluation and the effect management on :

  • Reliability
  • Maintainability
  • Availability
  • Safety

For more information, see the more general framework of the Dependability.

Reliability in conception

Considering the variability of the geometric, parameters, loads and material properties to estimate the reliability and optimize your products.

  • Methods : Constraints / Resistance, First-order reliability, Subset simulation...
  • Tools : PhimecaSoft, OpenTurns...

Application examples :

Experimental reliability

  • Definition of test plans to validate the attainment of a reliability goal (number of piece to test / the loading applied / the duration of tests / Criteria for test acceptance)
  • Estimation of the reliability level of the products from test results

Operational reliability

  • Failure mode organization into hierarchy and analysis
  • Estimation and reliability prediction of products to clients and of the associated guarantee costs
  • Quantification of pieces volumes to change for supplying the repair platforms.
