Design for Reliability (DFR) is not a new concept and is increasingly being adopted by leading engineering companies focusing on their reliability issues. However, in many sectors there remains confusion about what the DFR process actually involves and how it can truly benefit the development of new products.
Two definitions of Reliability are:
The ability of an item to perform a required function under stated conditions for a stated period of time (Source: BS 4778 or MOD Defence Standard 00-40)
It is the probability R(t) that an item can perform a required function without failure under given conditions for a given time interval.
From this recorded webinar, you will gain an understanding of DFR and learn how reliability engineering tools and techniques, such as FMEA, Design of Experiments, Weibull Analysis and Accelerated Testing, can be successfully integrated into your product development cycle.
