Pro-Opta Reliability Analysis and Optimization Suite

Last Updated : 08/27/2015

Developed by Sandia National Laboratories, the Pro-Opta software package is a reliability analysis and optimization suite that provides an analyst with the information needed to make strategic decisions in the competitive marketplace. The tool offers the flexibility to create a system’s reliability model using either field data (maintenance records) or summarized data (for example, from a failure mode, effects, and criticality analysis). Once the model is created, decisions can be made on which components should be improved based on sensitivity analysis. Potential spares and reliability improvement options can be assessed and ranked to aid in evaluation of alternatives based on availability, reliability, and cost impacts. Pro-Opta is applicable to defense, energy, aviation, and commercial industries. The Pro-Opta Reliability Analysis and Optimization Suite enables:

  • Analysis of field maintenance data and computation of system metrics
  • Identification of key drivers of system unreliability
  • Prediction of equipment lifecycle performance
  • Assessment of modifications to maintenance practices
  • Ranking of potential reliability improvement and inventory options
  • Modeling of system reliability using graphical fault tree
  • Evaluation of fleets with multiple configurations
  • Identification of trade-offs of cost versus performance
