Calculated Results, Plots and Reports
Complete Array of Calculated Results
Failure rates, MTBFs and other calculated results are displayed directly in the system hierarchy. You can choose which columns will be displayed at any given time, and also use the new Highlights feature to use red, yellow and green background colors to make it easy to see how the component’s failure rate contributes to the overall failure calculated for the system or assembly.
You can also use the Pi Factors View to see how the component properties contribute to the pi factors (also called multiplying factors) in the failure rate model, and use the Calculation Information window to see a report of the pi factors and failure rate calculation for any selected component.
Graphical Plots and Charts
Lambda Predict also provides a complete array of plots and charts to demonstrate your analysis graphically. This includes plots for Failure Rate, MTBF, Mission Time and Unreliability (plotted independently and versus Temperature, Environment, Stress, etc.). The Plot Setup gives you full control over the display settings and all plot graphics can be saved as *.jpg, *.gif, *.png or *.wmf files and inserted into other reports and presentations.
You have the option to create plots that present data from more than one system/assembly analysis. The Saved Plots feature also provides the ability to save the plot with the project (including all settings and a direct link to the original data source).
For maximum flexibility, Lambda Predict offers template-based reports to present and disseminate the results of your predictions. A basic report template is provided for each reliability prediction standard that is included with your license. You can customize the appearance of these predefined report templates, and also manage and build your own custom report templates.
Reports can be generated in Microsoft Word® and/or Excel®.
