Analyzing Competing Failure Modes Using Batch Auto Run

Often, a product could fail due to any of several possible causes of failure. For a non-repairable component, each unit can only fail once; hence, if the occurrence of any one failure mode results in a failure of the component, then the failure modes are said to "compete" to cause the failure. In Weibull++, competing failure modes (CFM) analysis can be performed to determine the product reliability, and the Batch Auto Run utility can be used to analyze the various failure modes individually.
