Subject: Typical MTBF Values
On pg 54 of the Reliabilty Toolkit: CPE, there is a table of typical MTBF values for computer equipment. Are these figures overly pessimistic? If so is there a source of information that will provide more accurate values. (Not all manufacturers are helpful when asking for this information. I would be grateful if anybody could provide me with the numbers. Thanks in advance.
