Calculation and Analysis

Reliability calculation and analysis takes reliability testing further.


It can yield valuable information and enable manufacturers to predict how products will react in the longer term. This is particularly useful where the life time of a product, or its sheer physical size, cannot be meaningfully covered by accelerated aging testing.

SGS uses theoretical prediction and analysis for all manner of products from the smallest items to large scale projects, such as a telecommunication network. As a paper exercise additional factors such as redundancy can be taken into account.

Reliability calculations:

  • MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) and Failure Rate
  • Life Time
  • RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety)
  • System Availability

Additionally our reliability calculation will include analysis of the effects of possible failures using FMEA (Failure Mode Effect Analysis).

With a global network of Reliability Labs and experts SGS is ideally placed to carry out your reliability testing. Our calculation and analysis helps you place only safe products on the market.
