The ReliaFree Project is an alternative to commercial, proprietary reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety (RAMS) analysis software. The ReliaFree Project is an integrated suite of tools. Any number of analyses can be linked together such that an update to one module will result in all linked modules being updated appropriately. This approach provides a closed loop life-cycle with visibility into a product's performance throughout. The same database is used to store field failure data as is used to store design prediction information.
