RELIASOFT BLOCKSIM

A comprehensive platform for system reliability, availability, maintainability

System reliability, availability, maintainability and related analyses

ReliaSoft Blocksim is a powerful yet intuitive dedicated system enabling you to model the simplest or most complex systems and processes using reliability block diagrams (RBDs), fault tree analysis (FTA) and Markov diagrams.

Using exact computations or discrete event simulation, BlockSim facilitates a wide variety of analyses required by product designers and asset managers for both repairable and non-repairable systems. This includes reliability analysis, maintainability analysis, availability analysis, reliability optimization, throughput calculation, resource allocation, life cycle cost estimation and other system analyses.

BlockSim can also be extended to include Process Flow and Event Analysis (RENO).

Why Use ReliaSoft BlockSim?

  • Assess system reliability and lower the failure rates
    Quickly build complex models to identify potential areas of poor reliability and where improvements can be made. Identify critical components (or failure modes).
  • Make predictions and recognize the patterns
    Model the behavior of a system with Markov diagrams, and analyze partial or degraded working states.
  • Obtain estimated performance metrics that can facilitate decision-making
    Applications include scheduling planned maintenance, planning for spares, identifying bottlenecks in production throughput and estimating life cycle costs.
  • Find the most effective ways to improve system performance
    Design any configuration to analyze its reliability, maintainability, and availability using load sharing, standby redundancy, phases, and duty cycles to represent the system.
  • Estimate production capacity and identify critical components
    Identify bottlenecks in production, optimize resource allocation, and improve the processing efficiency of any system with throughput analysis.
  • Enhance your maintenance optimization and simulation modeling
    Model the reliability and maintainability of equipment and analyze multiple flow types within the system using process flow diagrams.
  • Make crucial decisions easier with life cycle cost analysis
    Specify the direct and indirect costs associated with the maintenance strategies that you have defined, including costs related to downtime, maintenance crews, spares, etc.
  • Model any configuration
    Analyze its reliability, maintainability and availability using load sharing, standby redundancy, phases and duty cycles to represent the system.

Cost modeling using ReliaSoft Blocksim

Cost modeling is a method of estimating the costs associated with a project or product. As with any estimation process, it is important to capture the variability of inputs and to report on the sensitivity of the outputs to this variation.

We look at how a systems modelling tool like ReliaSoft BlockSim can be used to model costs associated with an asset or product.
