Custom Dormancy Conversion Factors

Custom Dormancy Conversion Factors

When using a mission profile with dormant phases in Relex or Windchill Quality Solutions, any part type that is not included in the dormancy conversion factor table, such as Inductor-Coils, Miscillaneous-Quartz Crystals or specified failure rate parts are assigned a failure rate of 0 in dormant mission phases. This method does not provide adequate conservatism. To resolve this issue it would be helpful to allow the user to define a dormancy conversion factor for these undefined components. Additionally it would be a nice feature to have the ability to overide the default conversion factors to accomodate the situation where alternate factors are provided by a customer.

Thanks for you input.  The best suggestion i can provide in the short term would be to create the part twice - one with the active failure rate and one with your dormant failure rate.  Control dormancy with a multiplicative adjustment factor.

Was this feature ever implemented? It would be very handy to have.
