Bellcore/Telcordia Reliability Prediction in Lambda Predict

Standards based reliability prediction is a methodology for predicting the reliability of a product by using failure rate estimates published in globally recognized standards. It is usually conducted during the concept and design phase of product development, where test data are not yet available. With the release of Version 9, Lambda Predict now supports four reliability prediction standards: MIL-HDBK-217F, Bellcore/Telcordia (SR-332), NSWC-07 and FIDES. This article focuses on the Bellcore/Telcordia standard. We will present an overview of the four versions of the standard that are supported by the software, and then give an example that uses the latest version of the standard, Telcordia SSR-332 Issue 3.
