Flexible Data Management Capabilities
The analyses that you perform with Lambda Predict will be stored in relational database files, which makes it possible for you to take advantage of many useful data management capabilities. This includes the ability to query data, the ability to sort and present data in a variety of different ways and the ability to easily duplicate or transfer data when needed.
Using Databases, Projects and Predictions to Organize Analysis Data
The software provides flexible options for you to organize and manage your analysis information in ways that will help you to achieve your particular goals. For example, the option to store multiple "predictions" per database and multiple "systems" per prediction makes it possible to:
- Keep the analyses for multiple revisions of a design together so that you can track your progress during the course of the product development lifecycle.
- Perform what-if scenarios by duplicating an analysis and changing selected parameter(s) in order to compare the results.
- Create a single prediction for an electromechanical system that includes electronic components analyzed with the MIL-217 or Bellcore/Telcordia standards and mechanical components analyzed with NSWC.
Importing Parts from "Bill of Materials" (BOM) Data Files
Because we understand that importing system configuration data from an external "Bill of Materials" data file can provide a significant head-start for performing a reliability prediction analysis, Lambda Predict's Import Wizard makes it easy to import data from Microsoft Excel® or delimited text files.
For maximum flexibility and to save time for future imports, the wizard guides you through the process to build your own template that "maps" the information from your file to the data fields that are supported by the software. You can save and reuse this template for other data sets that follow the same file structure.
Easy to Import/Export or Copy/Paste Between Lambda Predict Analyses
When you want to reuse information from an existing Lambda Predict analysis, the software provides a quick and easy tool that allows you to browse through the available information and select the items that you wish to import from another database. You also have the option to open multiple predictions at the same time and easily copy and paste information between analyses.
