ReliaSoft XFRACAS is a highly configurable, web-based Failure Reporting, Analysis and Corrective Action System (FRACAS). Depending on how you configure your implementation, 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. The software can 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.
Easy web access for collaboration and deployment
Build a "knowledge base" of lessons learned that can be shared throughout the organization and across multiple sites, suppliers, and customers. Understand the root cause and prevent similar issues.
Highly configurable to fit your organization’s specific processes
Match XFRACAS to your internal processes, and refine them as they evolve. Leverage the flexibility of XFRACAS to scale and make changes within your organization, as well as share the essentials across business units.
Capture data for a variety of reliability analyses
Use data from XFRACAS for life data analysis or repairable system/reliability growth analysis in Weibull++. Share system configuration and failure modes data between XFRACAS and XFMEA / RCM++ / RBI.
Track your products’ and suppliers’ quality and reliability
Achieve design improvements, faster product release, better service, and enhanced customer satisfaction with XFRACAS.
Gain valuable insight to manage corrective actions
Bridge the gap between addressing individual failures and managing efforts to understand, contain and resolve the underlying problems with XFRACAS' closed-loop process.
Effectively identify and solve issues
Manage your products and processes, track your failures and returns, escalate incidents, and implement a corrective action system to prevent reoccurrences and improve performance.
Highly configurable to meet your needs
XFRACAS can be implemented with a single entity (where all users share the same configuration settings and data) or with multiple entities (where different business units have their own separate settings, data and permissions), where you can:
The optional Go-Live Service includes an on-site visit from an XFRACAS implementation specialist, training for up to 10 “power users” and assistance to configure your implementation to meet your particular processes and needs.
Personalized portal for each user
For each user, the XFRACAS home page provides a customizable, at-a-glance view of all the issues you need to work on, such as:
Incident (failure) reporting
In XFRACAS, each “incident” deals with a single instance of a failure, suggestion or other event so you can track how it was addressed and capture sufficient detail for reliability and related analyses:
Capture findings from failure analysis on returned parts
If parts are removed/replaced and returned for more in-depth failure analysis, XFRACAS can capture additional details, such as the RMA number, sales order number or work order number, findings from the visual inspection and detailed analysis, fault history or sensor data, or other test results.
Part tracking for serialised systems
If you are tracking specific systems by serial/TAG number, XFRACAS can capture a detailed history for each piece of equipment, such as:
Track completion of assigned actions
Throughout XFRACAS, you can assign actions to system users and track the progress and completion.
Root cause analysis and team-based problem resolution
In XFRACAS, a “problem” is a larger issue that may require a team-based approach to understand the root cause and implement improvements that will prevent similar issues from occurring again in the future.
Track stats for a group of incidents and problems
In XFRACAS, a “project” groups multiple problems together and provides quick access to high-level statistics for all associated incidents and problems, such as:
