Subject: Failure per Million Hours
Please explain how the failure rate per million hours increases as the duty cycle is decreased (when I divide by the duty cycle to convert from failures per million calendar hours). This seems to defy logic as I would expect the failure rate per million hours to decrease as I decrease the percentage of operating time.
