Use Case 7: Doing Nothing is Stressful
Join Adam and Fred as they discuss how non-use of a product can be a stress that shortens life.
- Many common products have been caught by surprise with early life field failures associated to non-use. Are engineering designers considering these “non-use stresses” when designing and making reliability statement on a product?
- Use Case 7 is a new exercise that Adam has been implementing with his customers. The exercise has the team evaluate unusual use-cases that the customer may use a product in. In many cases these are extreme oir completely unplanned stresses. But as Adam found out in a recent presentation of his Use Case 7 tool engineers were able to share examples o non-use being the surprise stress.
Enjoy an episode of Speaking of Reliability. Where you can join friends as they discuss reliability topics. Join us as we discuss topics ranging from design for reliability techniques, to field data analysis approaches.
