Application Examples for RENO
We have compiled some examples to demonstrate the types of tasks that you will be able to perform with ReliaSoft's RENO software.
You can use RENO for a wide variety of applications including, but not limited to:
- Reliability and Quality Examples
- Risk Analysis Examples
- Optimization Examples
- Decision (Event) Tree Examples
- Financial Analysis Examples
- Miscellaneous Fun Examples
Additional examples are shipped with the software (in the "Examples" folder in the application directory) and in the RENO training guide.
Note: The data and/or exact test method that were used may have been modified in cases where the actual information was deemed to be confidential.
Note: All examples use the decimal definition (.) and list separator (,) for USA regional settings. If your settings differ, you must adjust the inputs accordingly to reproduce the examples. For example, the function f(10.3,2.7) under USA regional settings would be f(10,3;2,7) under German regional settings, and so on.
Snow Blower Reliability
Estimate the reliability of a snow blower under specified operating conditions that vary by region. Consider the amount of snowfall and the area of the driveways in the region.
Reliability Considering Both Failure and Usage Distributions
Determine the reliability and reliability vs. time plot for a washing machine that has different failure distributions for different usage loads.
Hinge Assembly Variability
Estimate the percentage of times that a hinge assembly will be out of spec based on the known variabilities for its component parts.
Buy a Lock for Gym Locker?
Evaluate whether it will be more cost effective to buy a lock or not buy a lock for your gym locker, given the costs of maintaining a lock and the risk of having your valuables stolen.
