Explore Effective Approaches for Verifying and Achieving Product Reliability Requirements

Like all other performance requirements, product reliability requirements need to be satisfied before product launch. However, reliability is a function of time, so the methods for verifying performance reliability differ from most other performance characteristics.

This webinar with expert speaker Steven Wachs will explore several approaches for verifying reliability targets or specifications have been achieved to the desired level of confidence. Steven will specifically discuss approaches using time-to-failure data to estimate reliability metrics and demonstration tests, where minimum reliability may be demonstrated with zero or few failures. You will learn about methods that help manage the risks of field failures due to inadequate designs or misunderstood product use conditions. You will also get options to verify and demonstrate that customer reliability requirements have been achieved.

Session Highlights
