Final Customer: Agusta

Project: RAMS Analysis

Description: Z Lab produced RAMS, as Reliability Prediction, Hazard Analysis, FMECA and CA, Maintainability Analysis, FMES Analysis and FTA Analysis for fuel storage system.

For Reliability Calculation of mechanical parts is used the standard NPRD-2011 (Non Electronic Parts Reliability Data), whereas for Reliability Calculation of electronic parts is used the standard MIL-HDB-217 F (Reliability Prediction of Electronic Equipment).

MIL-STD-1629 and FMD-97 are the standard used for FMEA and CA (failure mode description and criticality).

For Maintainability Analysis is used the standard MIL-HDBK-472.
