Hobbs – Reliability Demonstration: Theory and Practical Applications

April 29, 2020 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am


By Dr. Andre Kleyner


This webinar covers a number of reliability demonstration techniques including success based testing, test-to failure, degradation analysis, and other tools utilized by reliability engineers in the industry to demonstrate the reliability during a product test and validation process. It also includes the latest developments on converting test reliability into population reliability and cost improvements techniques, such as test sample size reduction utilizing prior product knowledge. 

Webinar Content:

  • Success Based Testing
  • Accounting for the failures during Success Based Testing 
  • Test to Failure and Weibull analysis
  • Using Degradation Analysis for reliability demonstration
  • “Composite” Techniques:
  • The tradeoff between test duration and test sample size using Parametric Binomial 
  • Continuous testing
  • Availability vs. Reliability
  • Additional Reliability Demonstration Tools
  • Cost reduction by minimizing the test sample size utilizing a prior product knowledge
  • Correlation between the reliability demonstrated during a test and field population reliability (demonstrating high reliability with a reasonable sample size)
  • Reliability Demonstration Cost Models and Cost reduction recommendations
