In general, the first prototypes produced during the development of a new system contain design, manufacturing and/or engineering deficiencies. In order to identify and correct these deficiencies, the prototypes are usually subjected to a rigorous testing program. During this testing, most problem areas are usually identified and appropriate corrective (or redesign) actions are taken. During the first phases of a product’s development, the estimate of the product’s final reliability is typically called the “reliability goal.” To reach this goal, the product must undergo comprehensive testing and appropriate corrective actions must be implemented. This well structured process of finding reliability problems and monitoring the increase of the product’s reliability through successive phases is commonly called “reliability growth.” This webinar will introduce the principles of reliability growth testing and strategies.
