Fundamentals of Reliability Testing
So last week I was looking at some things around Reliability and I realized how big the Reliability Engineering field is. Then I thought why not share it with others on what I have learned so far and at the same time with a hope that experts in this field may read this and correct me if there are any mistakes in my understanding. In this blog, we will start with some basic concepts, touch on Reliability Mathematics and follow up with some examples in part-II. A general caution about Metrics Metrics are a quantitative measure of a system or network behavior which allows us to characterize the system behavior so that we can make decisions based on that. For instance, a light bulb is no longer glowing or a router stops routing. Failure Rate: A failure rate, F, defines failure frequency in terms of failures per unit time, like percentage of failures per hours. We can estimate Failure rate by looking at the operating hours of all the units, including the failed ones and the numbers of units failed.
The simplest, purely producer-oriented or inspectors' view of reliability is that in which a product is assessed against a specification or set of attributes, and when passed is delivered to the customer. The customer, having accepted the product, accepts that it might fail at some future time. This simple approach is often coupled with a warranty, or the customer may have some protection in law, so that he may claim redress for failures occurring within a stated or reasonable time. However, this approach provides no measure of quality over a period of time, particularly outside a warranty period. Even within a warranty period, the customer usually has no grounds for further action if the product fails once, twice or several times, provided that the manufacturer repairs the product as promised each time.
Probability and Life Distributions for Reliability Analysis 45 graphical method for reliability estimation are also presented with examples. Chapter 4 Chapter 11 covers basic models and principles to quantify and evaluate reliability Equation illustrates that the failure pdf is normalized in terms of the size of.
Introduction to Reliability Engineering
Reliability Engineering pp Cite as. In the earlier times, the problems connected with the development and operation of the systems were serious but the consequences of failures were not as dramatic or as catastrophic. From the beginning of the industrial age reliability problems had to be considered rather seriously.
Almost every major item that consumers purchase has a warranty period.
