Here is a link to my [James McLeish] slides on the problems with MTBF and what should replace it\npresented at the Applied Reliability Symposium last month. “The Transition from MTTF Reliability Predictions to Physics of Failure Reliability Assessments”\nApplied Reliability Symposium 2012, New Orleans, LA, June 2012 http://www.dfrsolutions.com/uploads/courses/ARS2012.pdf A lot of people agree with me on this, the hall was standing room only and the attendees voted me best presentation of the conference. http://www.arsymposium.org/2012/ars2012_awards.htm#presentations
