    Powerful computers on each designer's desk, improvements in simulation technique, and advances in the reliability assessment theory make it possible to consider a transition from prescriptive concepts, such as partial factor design (PFD), to fully probabilistic concepts applicable in design practice, such as the feasible simulation-based reliability assessment (SBRA) method. Using a pilot example, the main differences between the PFD assessment procedure and SBRA procedure are demonstrated and described.
