Use RBDs, Fault Trees or Markov Diagrams

Reliability Block Diagram (RBD) Configurations

BlockSim's interface for reliability block diagram (RBD) creation is the most intuitive, flexible and polished in the industry. Easy drag-and-drop techniques allow you to build RBDs for the simplest to the most complex systems. The software supports all of the following reliability-wise configuration types:

We have drastically increased BlockSim’s capability for encapsulation by allowing users to publish an analyzed diagram as a model that can be used in any other Synthesis analysis (e.g., in another BlockSim diagram or in the reliability/maintainability calculations supported by Xfmea or RCM++).

Fault Tree Analysis Configurations

BlockSim's fault tree analysis interface supports all of the traditional gates and event symbols that are applicable to system reliability and related analyses. In addition, only BlockSim allows you to expand the modeling capabilities with additional logic gates that represent load sharing and standby redundancy configurations. The available event symbols include Basic, Undeveloped, Trigger, Resultant and Conditional, while the supported fault tree diagram gates include:

Now fault tree diagrams can be configured to display intermediate results at each individual gate (in addition to the results calculated for the top-level gate).

Your BlockSim projects can contain both fault trees and reliability block diagrams together in the same analysis workspace. You can also integrate your fault trees and RBDs by linking a fault tree as a subdiagram to an RBD or vice versa, copying events from a fault tree diagram and pasting them as blocks in an RBD, and automatically converting any fault tree to an RBD.

Markov Diagrams

If supported by your license, you can now create both discrete and continuous Markov diagrams in BlockSim. Markov diagrams allow you to model the behavior of systems based on transitions between states, where the next state that the system enters is dependent only upon the current state (and not affected by any previous states). This gives you the ability to look at partial or degraded working states, and to start analysis in varying states. [See article "Using Markov Diagrams in BlockSim for Reliability Analysis"]

If you have both RENO and BlockSim, you can analyze a Markov diagram during RENO simulation and use the analysis result in your flowchart.
