Reliability Analysis Module
Minitab offers an extensive array of reliability tools, along with a module designed to help you effortlessly implement them for your data analysis. Minitab’s Reliability Module places the most robust problems, from traditional reliability and warranty analysis to Accelerated Life Testing, to life data models in one convenient location.
Product Development & Innovation: Predict and Prevent Product Failure
Reliability analysis plays a crucial part in developing and testing new and innovative products. By assessing the reliability of prototypes and identifying potential points of failure, organizations can proactively make design improvements. This helps to save costs and brings innovations to the market faster. Watch our on-demand webinar to learn how Minitab’s reliability solutions can help your organization accelerate reliable, high-quality new products, and innovations.
In a fast-changing industry where time-to-market and product reliability give a competitive edge, discover how Signify, formerly Philips Lighting, rapidly validates their new innovations with Minitab.
Quality Control & Risk Assessment
Reliability analysis is a valuable tool in quality control processes. It helps to identify defects, determine failure rates, and assess the reliability of products or processes over time. By analyzing failure data, companies can make informed decisions regarding process improvements, material selection, risk mitigation strategies, and quality assurance techniques.
Accelerated Life Testing
Reliability analysis can quantify the probability of failure and its potential consequences, enabling organizations to identify critical areas and prioritize resources. Accelerated Life Testing expedites the failure process so that you can get reliability estimates on parts or products that otherwise would take several years of use to wear out and fail.
Learn how to calculate an accelerate life test in Minitab.
Warranty analysis can be used to estimate warranty costs, forecast warranty costs, determine warranty periods, and evaluate the impact of design or manufacturing changes on warranty claims. By analyzing warranty data, manufacturers can identify potential issues, improve product quality, and optimize warranty policies. Using the results from their analysis, organizations can better allocate resources to address future product failures adequately.
Reliability analysis is used in asset management to optimize maintenance strategies and minimize downtime. By analyzing failure patterns and maintenance records, organizations can determine the most cost-effective maintenance intervals, predict equipment failures, and plan proactive maintenance strategies.
Understand how analyzing unscheduled maintenance can help to proactively identify a failure mode before it happens.
