General adjustment (multiplying) factors have been evolved and these are often used to scale up basic failure rates to particular environmental conditions. Because Failure Rate is, probably, the least precise engineering parameter, it is important to bear in mind the limitations of a Reliability prediction. 4 now makes it possible to express predictions using confidence intervals. The resulting MTBF, Availability (or whatever) should not be taken as an absolute parameter but rather as a general guide to the design reliability.
