Subject: Export to Excel - Import to Prism
I've got a big assembly with lots of sub-assemblys (about 130 sub-assemblys, 800 parts in total). Now I have to change a value for most of the parts, which could be done easily with excel. Therefore I used the export function, in the next step I imported the file to excel and changed the relevant values. Problem is, the import back to PRISM doesn't work, or better said, I have to manually build up the assembly structure again. Is there any way to do it correctly?

Subject: Item Toolkit - Memories
I have a problem with the memories size using the Item Toolkit. This application only permits memories up to 1001 bit, using MIL-HDBK-217 Notice 2. The equipment which I have to calculate the failure rate, contains memories higher than these 1001 bits.
The only idea I had was to calculate the failure rate for these chips, with the MIL-HDBK-217 Notice 2, and after adjust them taking the "Adjustment Factor". Anybody knows another way to resolve the problem. Thank you all.

Subject: Models for assessing MTBF of armoured vehicle Road Wheels?
What is the recommended model for wear life analysis of roadwheels of an armoured vehicles? I have collected the cumulative mileage data when the road wheels are replaced so can i use exponential model? i dont think so because road wheels has a wear out failure mode. so what mathematically model should i use and how to use it?
