Model and analyze complex systems using state transition diagrams with Windchill Markov

Reliacore usually get involved in business cases where companies are about to design or redesign major systems. What makes it interesting is that these system tend to include a wide range of:

  • Complexity
  • Redundancy
  • Interdependency
  • Sequence-dependent failures

When this is the case, analysis needs to exceed the scope of standard, series-based modeling tools. Windchill Markov provides robust state transition diagramming tools necessary to model these systems. With the intuitive interface tools you can create graphical representations of complex system states, along with the connections between them. From each diagram, it is then possible to calculate system performance metrics, including capacity, reliability and availability for different states.

Some pronounced benefits

  • State transition diagramming tools to represent several complex states and transitions between them
  • Model systems with the highest degree of complexity, including those with multiple complex mechanisms
  • Account for switchover mechanisms, repair priorities, limited repair resources, and failure sequence dependency
  • Consider associated costs in terms of currency, functionality, or throughput
  • Interactive graphical editing functionality allows easy updates to a model and quickly recalculates system metrics
  • Supports a wide range of calculations including:
    • MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures)
    • MTTF (Mean Time to Failure)
    • MTTR (Mean Time to Repair)
