Abstract

This paper is intended to introduce a general purpose software and hardware design reliability assessment methodology based on the analysis of failure occurrence trend previous to modeling of failure processes. The failure data is collected at test phases and during the system operating life time. The maintenance requirement is used to qualify the Tropico R switching system, according to both hardware components and design failures.

Key words

Résumé

Cet article présente une méthodologie pour le suivi du logiciel et du matériel pendant la phase de conception basée sur I’analyse du test de tendance avant de modéliser le processus de défaillance. Les données de défaillance sont collectées pendant les périodes de test et de vie opérationnelle. La spécification de qualité de service pour la maintenance est utilisée pour qualifier le système de commutation Tropico R en tenant compte des défaillances du matériel et du processus de conception.
