Theoretical Failure Rate | MTBF  Prediction | Derating Analysis

Percept helped this customer in finding their predicted failure rate and understanding “the curve”.  Percept provides a Theoretical Failure Rate allowing you to make informed decisions about your design BEFORE you actually have hardware. We will take a look at your collected parts list to determine your failure rate based on their failure rate predictions.     Call today for your              FREE Consultation!                                                 303.444.7480                                                                 Back to Stage 2: Feasibility

Understanding your expected failure rate gives you the opportunity to set realistic warranty requirements. It also gives you an expectation of costs.

Percept can help you avoid the need to make significant changes late in the development process. A Predicted Failure Rate can also be used as a sales tool. We can give you the information necessary to stay ahead of your competitor’s in offering a better warranty.

What Are the Benefits?

  • Opportunity to set realistic warranty requirements and understanding of expected costs
  • Ability to compare your product’s warranty with the competitors’
  • Reduction of costs and time by avoiding the need to make significant changes later in the development cycle


  • Evaluation of listed parts for product
  • Determine predicted failure rate
  • Determine how often you will need scheduled maintenance for parts
