Center for Reliability Growth

DEVCOM Analysis Center

The DEVCOM Analysis Center provides various Reliability Growth tools written in Microsoft Excel. One of these tools is The Reliability Scorecard which provides a structured engineering and analytical approach to track the achievement of reliability requirements and the adequacy of the overall Reliability Program throughout the program's acquisition life cycle. The DEVCOM Analysis Center has also developed several models designed for planning, tracking, and projecting reliability. For more information on the tools offered, see the descriptions below.

Imagine a computer monitor with line graph displaying Planning Models

Comprised of both PM2 Continuous and PM2 Discrete, the reliability growth planning methodology allows the feasibility of achieving a requirement to be assessed, given program schedules, amount of testing, and resource constraints.


Tracking Models

The purpose of the RGTMC is to assess the reliability improvement (within a single test phase) of a system during development, for which usage is measured on a continuous scale.        


Imagine a computer monitor with a projection model displayed Projection Models

CROW Projection Model (ACPM)

The purpose of ACPM is to estimate system reliability at the beginning of a follow-on test phase by taking into consideration the reliability improvement from delayed fixes Benefits include the ability to project the impact of delayed corrective actions on system reliability.        

Discrete Projection Model (ADPM) 

The Discrete Projection Model (ADPM) provides an estimate of the projected reliability following the implementation of both delayed and non-delayed fixes for discrete (one-shot) systems. The model also provides estimates of important reliability growth metrics.

Maturity Projection Model (AMPM)

The purpose of AMPM is to provide an estimate of the projected reliability following the implementation of both delayed and non-delayed fixes. The model also provides estimates of the important reliability growth metrics.


Imagine a computer monitor with a scorecard displayed Scorecards

Reliability Scorecard

The Reliability Scorecard examines a supplier's use of reliability best practices, as well as the supplier's planned and completed reliability tasks. It also assists in tracking achievement of reliability requirements and rating adequacy of the Reliability Program.        

Software Reliability Scorecard 

The Software Reliability Scorecard extends and complements the general reliability scorecard by examining an individual software development effort and assessing the level of risk associated with the software reliability practices being applied.

IOT Planning Tool (IPT) 

The purpose of the IPT-C is to help the user choose an appropriate IOT profile and obtain the necessary metrics for developing a reliability program plan. The IPT-C contains two tools called the IOT Planner - Continuous and the OC Curve Plotter - Continuous.        

IOT Planning Tool (IPT) Discrete (IPT-D)   

The purpose of the IPT-D is to help the user choose an appropriate IOT profile and obtain the necessary metrics for developing a reliability program plan. The IPT-D contains two tools called the IOT Planner - Discrete and the OC Curve Plotter - Discrete.

Visual SESAME (Selected Essential-Item Stock for Availability Method)

Visual SESAME (Selected Essential-Item Stock for Availability Method) is a multi-echelon, multi-indenture inventory model. It determines the optimal range and depth of spares and repair parts at all locations in the support structure in order to meet a weapon system readiness target or budget constraint. The use of Visual SESAME is mandated by the Department of the Army (AR 700-18) for Initial Provisioning Requirements Determination.
