Time to Market and Reliability
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss new product reliability development early and late.
- Introducing new technology that has significant field reliability issues may damage the confidence for future development of that technology. The smartphones that had a folding screen were released to the market and quickly had problems, making consumers less confident in folding screen smartphones in general.
- Electric automobiles have had reliability issues that shifted from combustion engine automobile mechanical problems to mostly electronics issues.
- With new technologies it is probably safer to over-design a product to make it reliable to insure the acceptance of the new technology.
- Newer consumer products lack of reliability will rapidly be shared widely on the internet.
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.
