Technology is changing much more rapidly than when empirical benchmarks were developed. Physics based reliability is more and more often a program requirement as the paradigm continues to shift away from statistical modeling and actuarial MTBF reliability calculations.
Sherlock tools are designed to help suppliers prepare for and meet these new requirements. By starting from first principles and material properties, reliability predictions can be far superior to those that assume decades old test data still apply to modern technologies.
