Leading Rail companies use BQR software for RAMS Analyses
Safety of rolling stock and signalling systems is critical for the rail industry, therefore, product designers are required to comply with reliability and functional safety standards such as EN-50126, EN-50128 and EN-50129.
A leading rolling stock Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is currently using BQR’s MTBF prediction software as part of the design Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Safety (RAMS) activities.
Another leading rolling stock OEM used BQR’s Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) software in order to calculate the failure probabilities of Safety Instrumented Functions (SIF), as required by the standards.
One of the calculated Fault Trees included hundreds of end events, and over 30 common causes, including nested common causes (common causes within common causes).
