Will PRISM just be a Software Package or will the new prediction Models be published?

PRISM will be a software package, and there will not be an associated handbook published. There will however be a printable users manual contained in the software package which will contain details about the models and methods in PRISM. The primary reason for PRISM is to disseminate the new RAC component reliability prediction models, a system reliability assessment methodology, and the RAC failure rate databases. The form of the models, methods and databases do not lend themselves to a handbook implementation, and therefore the RAC believes that the only practical dissemination medium is a software tool.
