Methodologies for Reliability Prediction of Electronic Component in Military Vehicles
Keywords:reliability, failure rate, electronic components, LED
Reliability prediction is conducted in all phases of the product life cycle. The purpose of these predictions is to identify the potential weaknesses in design, evaluate the design feasibility, compare alternative designs, provide the model for reliability analysis, track reliability improvement, etc. Reliability of electronic component is predicted by using the statistical prediction methods (standards-based), statistical analysis of operation & maintenance data or performing reliability testing. The article describes statistical prediction methods such as MIL-HDBK-217, RIAC 217Plus, FIDES Guide 2009, which are widely used for predicting the reliability of electronic components. In addition, we have calculated and compared the failure rate of electronic components in military vehicles with these different methods.
