Abstract

When products fail in the field, disasters can result. To head off problems, manufacturers must build reliability into the design of products and processes. Statistics can be used proactively to help improve reliability during product design and development and enable manufacturers to “do it right the first time.” The authors describe some technical and statistical problems from four specific reliability disasters to highlight lessons learned.
