Subject: Failure Rates
I am doing FMEA analysise of a benchmark power supply as for trial. For this I have to calculate RPN which is (RPN= SEVERITY x PROBABILITY OF FAILURE X DETECTION). I have found out the failure rates of each components using prism. That gives me failures/million hr. How can relate this failure rate with the severity or prbability of occurence. Can you suggest on this. I'll be really kind if you can help,
