PROJECT SUMMARY

A first pilot database system has been developed and a set of preliminary results was generated. The failure estimates produced from the database at this stage are calculated by averaging across the entries relevant to a chosen system or component. They are higher than might be expected because they currently do not account for similar components that are in operation that have not failed. Corrections for this will be undertaken in the next phase of work.
