MADe for Reliability
Using reliability analyses to inform the design and service plan
The Problem: Reliability is an increasingly important factor in source selection and a key determinant in
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Therefore, OEMs need to ensure they can efficiently set and manage
the reliability of a design in a controlled, consistent and traceable process at each stage of the
product lifecycle. Problems arise when reliability analysis is milestone driven, rather than configuration
managed with the design configuration.
Solution: MADe RAM provides a model-based solution that combines capabilities for Reliability
Allocation, Reliability Block Diagrams and Reliability / Availability Analysis with multiple failure
distribution methodologies. MADe RAM enables engineers to generate design and service
recommendations at each stage of the product lifecycle based on simulation analysis that can be
aligned with the specific design state / operational configuration.
