How Do Consumers Judge Reliability?
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss the challenge of manufacturers, especially those companies in the consumer electronics markets, on how they design and build reliable products that withstand normal and sometimes high stress conditions.
- Should a manufacturer be willing to show the extreme stresses that a portable computer can withstand (Fred dropping and damaging his PC)
- Environmental specifications set by manufacturers sometimes are not reflective of real environments that products use such as the max use temperature of 35C for smartphones.
- Consumer markets drive the reliability improvements such as smartphones becoming more water resistant as the technology improves.
