Mtg: Return on Investment for a Design for Reliability Program

by @ 7:37 am. Filed under ALL, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt

THURSDAY September 6, 2012
SCV Reliability Chapter
Speaker: Mike Silverman, Ops a la Carte
Time: Presentation at 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: Hewlett-Packard (Building 48, Oak Room), 19111 Pruneridge Ave, Cupertino
RSVP: not required

A good DFR Program has the following attributes:
1. Setting Goals at the beginning of the program and then developing a plan to meet the goals.
2. Having the reliability goals being driven by the design team with the reliability team acting as mentors.
3. Providing metrics so that you have checkpoints on where you are against your goals.
4. Writing a Reliability Plan (not only a test plan) to drive your program.
Recently, we have developed a method to calculate the Return on Investment (ROI) from a Design for Reliability (DFR) program, also known as the DFR ROI.? In this presentation, we will discuss a method we have developed to calculate the Return on Investment (ROI) from a Design for Reliability (DFR) program, also known as the DFR ROI.
There are a number of factors involved in calculating the ROI for your DFR program, including:
1) Improved Warranty Rate (derived from your Reliability Maturity Level which we will show you how to calculate)
2) Current Warranty Rate
3) Cost per Repair
4) Cost of New Reliability Program
5) Savings from Losing a Customer
6) Volume
In this presentation, we will show you how to calculate each of these to derive your DFR ROI.
