The above failure rate would, for instance, be 100 FITs. Less complex circuits or circuits operated at lower junction temperatures would have a considerably smaller failure rate. To summarize reliability assessment procedure To calculate MTBFs list the component parts accurately, find out the basic failure for each, and multiply this by the number of components. Add all products and divide into 100 000. This estimates the MTBF of the equipment in hours. The basic failure rates are modified by a weighting factor (due to the environment in which the equipment is operated), a possible rating factor (depending on whether the components are fully loaded or not), and also temperature.

Designing a warning system which will be effective in all fault conditions is therefore complex and difficult, and must be closely related to human characteristics; it will involve such considerations as the nature and positioning of warning signals, the priority in which they require attention under various fault conditions, and the ability and speed with which an operator can be expected to respond to them correctly in an emergency. The type of control chosen must be related to its function. Levers should preferably be long, so that less force is needed to move them, and the wrist and forearm should be supported if fine adjustment is required.

Vibration Installation and operability 43 above 30 Hz is generally not a serious hazard unless particularly intense; its effects are somewhat similar to noise. To avoid excessive fatigue due to vibration the nature of the vibration must be predicted or measured, and an acceptable level defined. Both these steps may involve complex matters of design engineering, and the second may involve the intricacies of human engineering. The final step is to control the vibration in order to bring it into acceptable limits, and this again may be difficult and require considerable expense.
