Now that I have some clarifications of the updated records, I was wondering how a failure rate was reported?! Say for a component at ARW the source information in the data base shows some 10 samples with a constant population of 105 tested over a constant operating time of say 0.002456E6 and has zero failure.. however the failure rate is reported as say 37.. How is this possible?? I would be happy if someone explains these to me :confused:
