AMSAA Maturity Projection Model (AMPM)

Updated 8/31/2012

Launch Tool
AMSAA Maturity Projection Model (AMPM)
5 stars out of 5 based on 1 user ratings.

The purpose of AMPM is to provide an estimate of the projected reliability following the implementation of both delayed and non-delayed fixes. The model also provides estimates of the following important reliability growth metrics:

  • B-mode initial failure intensity
  • expected number of B-modes surfaced
  • percent surfaced of the B-mode initial failure intensity surfaced
  • rate of occurrence of new B-modes

Other information (optional)

The benefits associated with AMPM include:

  • Corrective actions can be implemented during test or can be delayed until the end of test;
  • Reliability can be projected for future milestones;
  • The model can project the impact of delayed corrective actions on system reliability;
  • The projection takes into account the contribution to the system failure rate due to unobserved B-modes;
  • In situations where there is an apparent steepness of cumulative number of B-modes versus cumulative test time over an early portion of testing after which this rate of occurrence slows, there is methodology to partition the early modes from the remaining modes. These early B-modes must be aggressively and effectively corrected.
  • Additionally methodology exists to handle cases where there is an early "gap" or if there appears to be a difference in the average FEFs in early or start-up testing versus the remainder of testing (an apparent or visual difference in failure rate in the initial testing).
