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, XFRACAS can include tools for incident/failure reporting, failure analysis on returned parts, part tracking for serialized systems, root cause analysis, team-based problem resolution and tracking of assigned actions. The specific features, field names and behaviors that are accessible to you will depend on the settings for your implementation.

This guide covers features that may be available to all XFRACAS users. If you have administrative responsibilities for your implementation, you may also need to consult the following guides:

  • Implementation Guide -  guidance for an IT admin to prepare the database and web server(s) and install the website. It also provides tips to help an application admin complete the initial configuration. Online version | PDF version
  • Admin Guide - covers features that are available only to users with administrative permissions. Online version | PDF version

XFRACAS can also be integrated with other ReliaSoft applications, which 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.
