Reliability growth is what occurs when failure modes/mechanisms are identified, but only after their root causes are physically eliminated or mitigated in a design/process. It should start early in the design phase and continue through the entire life cycle. Reliability growth planning and management controls reliability achievement as a function of available resources and reallocates resources based on comparisons between planned/measured reliability at strategic milestones.
Design of Experiments for Reliability Improvement
Many times we want to improve Reliability (or other Quality characteristics) by way of increasing positive and reducing negative factor effects that influence performance. Read More
