Reliability Engineering:Trends, Strategies and Best Practices

Reliability Engineering:Trends, Strategies and Best Practices

Abstract

In reliability engineering, product industries now follow a conscious and planned approach to effectively address multiple issues related to product certification, failure returns, customer satisfaction, market competition and product lifecycle cost. Today, reliability professionals face new challenges posed by advanced and complex technology. Expertise and experience are necessary to provide an optimized solution meeting time and cost constraints associated with analysis and testing. In the changed scenario, the reliability approach has also become more objective and result oriented. This is well supported by analysis software. This paper discusses all associated issues including outsourcing of reliability tasks to a professional service provider as an alternate cost-effective option.

Excerpts from the Paper

A reliability plan is a framework for achieving program objectives for product reliability which include identification and scheduling of reliability tasks traceable to requirements, approach for applicable tasks (analysis and testing), responsibility matrix, resource optimization and planning and guidelines on preferred practice during design and development.
 
Reliability tasks are carried out along with the design development activity and completed at an appropriate phase. The schedule of the identified tasks should be included in the plan. The plan should capture the reliability priorities, program objectives and constraints. This input should be used for planning and optimization of effort. The strategy and the framework of the identified tasks related to reliability analysis and testing should be detailed unambiguously.
