Failure Rate of Redundant Configurations in Lambda Predict

Standards based reliability prediction methods typically assume that the failure rates for the components in a system are constant (i.e., the components are modeled by exponential distributions) and that the system fails if any component in the system fails (i.e., the system is arranged reliability-wise in series). When these two conditions are met, the system failure rate is constant. ReliaSoft's reliability prediction software, Lambda Predict, allows the user to improve upon the traditional standards based reliability method through the use of redundant reliability configurations at the block and system levels. This article addresses how redundancy affects the failure rates of systems composed of constant failure rate components.
