Understanding MTBF

Mean Time Between Failure attempts to estimate the length of time a given product is likely to operate before needing to be serviced or replaced. However, as with most generalized measurements of dependability, there are a wide range of variables that can impact the accuracy of published MTBF figures and, in some cases, render them completely irrelevant.
 

In our examination of MTBF in the IPC industry learn about:

  • The Vulnerabilities of Fanned Computers
  • The Definition and Use Cases for MTBF
  • The Challenges of MTBF in Industrial Computing
  • How to Ensure Reliability Using Hardshell Fanless Technology
  • The Concept of Hardware Lifetime Defined by Application
 

You're one click away from learning why MTBF is seldom the best measure of overall cost of system ownership.
