What To Do When the Supplier Changes Your Reliability Specification
Tim and Fred address a question posed by a listener about a supplier who changed the reliability specification, and what can be done to help ensure that the customer’s standards are being met.
Join Tim and Fred as they discuss the challenges in making sure that suppliers understand your reliability specifications, and produce a design or product that meets those specifications.
- The danger of over-simplifying reliability requirements, particularly the use of metrics like MTBF
- Why suppliers are prone to making assumptions about reliability specifications
- The responsibility of the buyer to stay involved during design reviews and early prototyping to protect their interests.
