When designing a product, the Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF), Failure Rate, and Service Life are important parameters which are often required by end customers for compliance with standards and regulations.
MTBF is important for safety and reliability analyses of critical systems, and in recent years MTBF has also become a standard parameter for comparing the quality of consumer electronics.
