Creating Unique Reliability Tests
A common request of reliability professionals is to design a set of reliability tests.
Many rely on standards, such as 85°C / 85%RH, to determine if a system is reliable, yet the standards do not provide a means to translate the results to your specific situation.
Reliability testing is a common part of product development. We also rely on our vendor’s reliability tests.
A well-crafted reliability test or series of tests helps us to understand what will fail and when. Craft your tests to be valuable.
Instead of doing what you always have done, focus on the likely failure mechanisms and design a test that helps you either confirm an existing model or create a new one. Pulling out the set of standards is easy and gets the planning done. Yet it doesn’t help you understand the reliability performance of your product.
In this discussion, let’s explore crafting a reliability test plan that provides value to your team.
