Our service includes problem solving, and because we have both design and manufacturing experience the solutions recommended are both practical and cost effective. Comprehensive technical reports are delivered, and we are often requested to compile the complete Technical File. Our documentation is prepared to support your existing QA procedures, and to meet ISO 9001 requirements for this area of activity.

Reliability and MTBF
Our service in reliability calculation is offered to designers and manufacturers, where in many cases they are required to provide some form of objective evidence for circuit or system reliability. It is particularly important in military applications or where high system availability is needed. MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) can be calculated from field data, but it is also possible to get an accurate prediction based on component usage and environmental stress.

We have experience in all of the commonly specified reliability models including;

  • Telcordia (Bellcore) SR-332

  • MIL-HDBK-217F and HDBK217 Plus

  • IEC 62380 formerly RDF 2000

  • China 299B

  • NSWC - for mechanical components
