Subject: Environment factor conversion for NPRD-95
Some of our suppliers have to provide reliability calculations for mechanical parts. Our spec. is calling the use of NPRD-95, Gm environment for mechanical parts reliability predictions. Some of the parts failure rates found are available only in a Gf ou Gb environment. Are there conversion factors that can be applied to the base failure rate to reflect the Gm environment for mechanical parts? Needed: From Gb, Gf, N, Ai, Au, ARW, CL to Gm. Thanks!
