Guide for Selecting and Using Reliability Predictions Based on IEEE 1413
|Publication Date:||12 September 2002|
The scope of this guide is processes and methodologies for conducting reliability predictions for electronic systems and equipment. This guide focuses on hardware reliability prediction methodologies, and speciﬁcally excludes software reliability, availability and maintainability, human reliability, and proprietary reliability prediction data and methodologies. These topics may be the subjects for additional future IEEE guides supporting IEEE Std 1413-1998.
The purpose of this guide is to assist in the selection and use of reliability prediction methodologies satisfying IEEE Std 1413-1998. The guide accomplishes this purpose by brieﬂy describing a wide variety of hardware reliability prediction methodologies. The guide also describes the appropriate factors and criteria to consider when selecting reliability prediction methodologies.
