Subject: Improving MTBF
I am doing a reliability study for a standby generator control system. I learned that one way to reach the target MTBF is by increasing the testing frequency. The formula I found to calculate the testing factor is MTBF/2 * target MTBF. The results seem dubious - can you validate this formula? Thank you.
