217Plus:2015, Notice 1 is the latest revision to the popular 217Plus Handbook of Reliability Prediction Models based on the original MIL-HDBK-217, Reliability Prediction of Electronic Equipment. Available exclusively through Quanterion, 217Plus?:2015, Notice 1 replaces the original software reliability prediction model with the Neufelder Model for software reliability prediction.
Quanterion’s long history with electronics prediction models and tools dates back to the development of PRISMR, the System Reliability Assessment methodology and automated reliability prediction tool, developed in the 1990s by Quanterion employees while working at the former Reliability Analysis Center (RAC). After 2000, PRISMR remained in use but was not updated to include new models. In 2005, when the RIAC was recompeted and awarded to a team that included Quanterion, these models were revisited and 217Plus, an update to PRISMR, was released shortly thereafter. 217Plus, which doubled the number of models in PRISMR and includes the complete prediction methodology for all of the major component categories in MIL-HDBK-217, was the only DoD-authorized and supported effort to expand the capabilities of PRISMR.
