Getting Started


ReliaSoft XFRACAS by Hottinger Bruel & Kjaer Inc. is a highly configurable, web-based Failure Reporting, Analysis and Corrective Action System (FRACAS). Depending on how your implementation is configured, this can include incident/failure reporting, failure analysis on returned parts, part tracking for serialized systems, root cause analysis, team-based problem resolution and tracking the completion of assigned actions.

Since XFRACAS is highly configurable, the specific features, field names and behavior will depend on the settings for your implementation.

This guide covers features that are available only to users with administrative permissions, to help you configure XFRACAS to meet your organization's specific needs. You may also need to consult the following resources:

  • User Guide- covers features that may be available to all XFRACAS users. Online version | PDF version
  • Implementation Guide - guidance for an IT admin to prepare the database and web server(s) and install the website, and for an application admin to complete the initial configuration. Online version | PDF version

XFRACAS can also be integrated with other ReliaSoft applications. This provides intelligent integration between reliability program activities and tools while simultaneously facilitating effective information sharing and cooperation between engineering teams of any size. Other ReliaSoft software by Hottinger Bruel & Kjaer Inc. includes Weibull++, BlockSim, Lambda Predict, XFMEA/RCM++, MPC, and SEP.
