Fault Tree+ Training – International System Safety Conference

Reliability Workbench FaultTree+

Fault Tree Analysis – Why you do it and what you get from it.

Minimal Cut Sets: Combinations of component failures that cause system failure.

Failure Models: How to put numbers into a Fault Tree, so you can get numbers out.

System Quantification: A brief overview of the calculations used to quantify a Fault Tree.

Batch Append the greatest data integrity tool

I’m not going to lie I head up sales for Isograph in North America. I often get labelled with some of the tactics sales people use in my industry. The best advice I can give to a prospective client is to try models using your own data and information to see how they turn out. Also, check the calculations and software options to ensure the software product will do what you want it to do not only today but next year when your model has matured. Although I am a sales person and my lips are moving I’m not lying here.

Batch append is one of those points that one should consider in a mature software product. How are you going to combine the work of many individual engineers into a final model you can use for certification or to present to management? If your tool cannot do this run for the hills!

Sometimes, when working on a large system model, you need to share the load, and split up the fault tree development to different people. But then the time comes to combine everyone’s work together. How do we do that? And how do we make sure that our master fault tree contains the most up-to-date information from each engineer’s fault trees?

This excerpt from our in-development online training course gives a quick insight into using the Batch Append feature to automate the linking of fault trees from different user’s projects, and how to keep the linked file up-to-date with the latest changes.

Quick introduction:

Repair, Replace or Refurbish?

Of course CAPEX will effect OPEX, or it should…or will it? The idea makes sense, however, at what point will a piece of equipment cost you more to maintain than it would cost to simply replace that piece of equipment? Should a refurbish be considered? How should a new plant be configured for the highest cost benefit? Not properly designing a system or not being willing to spend the money to replace equipment at the right interval could be costing you. By modelling your system in easy to use tools you can make logical decisions as well as justifying these decisions.

Webinar Upcoming Reliability Workbench Upgrades

The next version of Reliability Workbench (13.0.2) has now been released. Join us for this special preview webinar to get an early look at the new features that have been added. From changes to the report viewer interface, updated Prediction stands, data linking to the Allocation module, new DLL functions, expanded IEC 61508 calculations for both the Fault Tree and FMECA modules, a new Fault Tree failure model, and a brand-new results dialog for the FMECA module, complete with ISO 26262 functionality, there’s plenty to get excited about.

As always if you have any questions about our software please feel free to contact me.

Friday the 13th Webinar: Reliability Workbench Upgrades 13.0.2

Although some might have superstitious feelings about Friday the 13th. We have chosen to hold a webinar to get you away from all the coffee talk. For Friday the 13th we have come up with a special preview of our next version of Reliability Workbench which is also version 13 (specifically 13.0.2). Join us for this special webinar, on Friday October 13th at 12 PM Eastern Time, to get an early look at the new features that have been added. We have added significant changes to the report viewer interface, updated Prediction stands, data linking to the Allocation module, new DLL functions, expanded IEC 61508 calculations for both the Fault Tree and FMECA modules, a new Fault Tree failure model, and a brand-new results dialog for the FMECA module, complete with ISO 26262 functionality. There’s plenty to get excited about.
