What Reliability is Good Enough
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss the expectations of reliability in new products.
- How reliable does a product have to be?
- Li-ion Battery technology is still limited and eventually will fail after some finite number of cycles and typically long before the system is technologically obsolete, therefore most of the time it is made to be replaceable by the device manufacturer
- Maintenance of new electric vehicles may be less than traditional gas powered vehicles but now the reliability of the electronics and battery is much more an issue.
- How reliable do delivery drones need to be?
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.
