This tool helps understand reliability problem that is stochastic and has a threshold. It plots the spatial distribution of fishes (resembling charge carrier) going over the waterfall (resembling the threshold) as a function of probability and time to see how the distribution changes with the velocity of the flow. This tool also shows how the average, median and standard deviation of the arrival time of the fishes to the waterfall changes with the sample size, boundary limit and velocity.
