Get Your MTBF Estimation Here
MTBF is a magic method for predicting time to failure for your new design. On this page we present to you the fastest way to achieving MTBF.
Maybe The Best Function ever!
Zoltar says that your design has an MTBF of:
If you don’t like this number, Zoltar can give you another. Just click here:
which may work on your browser.
Note: This function was released on April 1st, 2009. Have Fun!
This method of MTBF estimation is as good or quite possibly better than others in common use. I trust Zoltar will serve your well.
A few years ago a clever reliability engineer create this bit of code for an internal company site.
The intent is to encourage discussion about reliability and improving product reliability performance. The idea is to help those in the organization looking for a quick estimate of MTBF find one. Then the team could engage with them to determine theÂ actual reliability questionsÂ and help provide answers.
Estimating, or calculating, or predicting, MTBF is rather a pointless exercise. So, if all you need a number, ask Zoltar. If you want to understand the reliability of your system, well that is not found by looking for MTBF.
How do you encourage your teams and industry to avoid looking for just the MTBF number? Add you thoughts and ideas in the comments below.
