Reliability and Maintainability NASA’s Reliability and Maintainability (R&M) program ensures that the systems within NASA’s spaceflight programs and projects perform as required throughout their life cycles to satisfy mission objectives. Mission objectives include safety, mission success and sustainability criteria.

The reliability theory and relevant methodologies have been developed via several phases. There were three main technical areas evolved during the growth process: 1.

Reliability engineering, which includes system reliability analysis, design review, and related task; 2. Operation analysis, which includes failure investigation and corrective.

Reliability Growth Analysis provides an overview of reliability growth analysis models and their application for data captured from developmental (reliability growth) testing and also from fielded (repairable) systems.

The main technical objective of the project is the development of a new methodology for reliability prediction for space products aiming to overcome the problems and limitations of the methods and approaches currently used in practice.

The final outcome of the project will be a handbook for reliability prediction in space applications, which will serve as an input for the. NASA-STDA— 5 of 52 RELIABILITY AND MAINTAINABILITY STANDARD FOR SPACEFLIGHT AND SUPPORT SYSTEMS 1.

The reliability team of a product manufacturer has put together a reliability growth plan, based on the Crow Extended model, for one of their new products. The reliability growth model was constructed with the following inputs: The requirement or goal.

The book covers areas like reliability mathematics, organization and analysis of reliability data, reliability modeling and system reliability evaluation techniques. Reliability measures are examined, taking into account the reliability function, the expected life, the failure rate and the hazard function, the reliability and hazard function for well-known distributions, hazard models and product life, the estimation of the hazard function and the reliability function from empirical data, and comments on distribution selection.

Fortunately, one or two relatively simple models have been very successful in a wide range of industrial applications. Two models that have previously been described will be used in this section. These models are the NHPP Power Law Model and the NHPP Exponential Law Model.

The Semantic Web is an extension of the World Wide Web through standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The goal of the Semantic Web is to make Internet data machine-readable.
