Analyze reliability, availability and cost

When systems are designed with complex and interdependent component relationships, you need more than basic series modeling tools to calculate their reliability, availability, and cost metrics. Windchill RBD combines intuitive and easy-to-use reliability block diagramming tools with powerful optimization and simulation calculations to analyze the performance and lifetime costs of complex, real-world systems.

We far too often hear that it’s hard to combine reliability block diagram (RBD) capabilities with optimization and simulation analyses. By using Windchill RBD, this is done efficiently and the software computes reliability and availability metrics for complex systems while accounting for:

  • Maintenance policies
  • Spare parts
  • Repair resources

Model the most complex system configurations and operating profiles. Augment your system diagram with a wide selection of maintenance-related parameters to accurately compute reliability, availability, and cost metrics.

Time and Efficiency

Windhill RBD, proven software to model and calculate on the most complex system used in several industry verticals. Some typical challenges to address with the software:

  • Maintainability and cost metrics
  • Calculate for maintenance intervals or maybe optimize spare parts inventory
  • Account for resource limitations, usually the case for repairable systems
  • Rapidly access exact results with or without Monte Carlo simulation

Supported configuration types

  • Series
  • Hot standby
  • Warm standby
  • Bridge
  • Generic and random network
  • Parallel operation
  • Cold standby
  • Redundant
  • k-out-of-n
  • Load-sharing redundancy

Included Globally Accepted Prediction Standards

  • Failure Rate
  • MTTF
  • Expected number of failures
  • Preventive maintenance intervals
  • Hazard rate
  • Steady-state availability
  • Cut sets
  • MTBF & Effective MTBF
  • Reliability & Availability
  • Optimize spares
  • Totaldowntime
  • Operational availability
  • Cost of initial configuration
  • Path sets
