Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)

Definition of Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF):

An average time between machinery breakdowns. If the MTBF decreases, root cause analysis must be carried out to bring the MTBF # to a high, meaning long times between failures. PM, TQM, JIT, better controls are all tools to make MTBF higher.
