Reliability Testing and Analysis with Intent
Adam Bahret - Apex Ridge Reliability Consulting
Product development programs execute reliability test and analysis methods such as HALT, Accelerated Life Tests, DFMEA's, and System Life tests. Often the results of these initiatives have a compromised impact on the final product due to a disconnect with the overall product development process. This disconnect is a progression from an initial program plan that identified specific reliability tools to aid program decisions and improve the design to isolated initiatives that do not influence the product or program as intended.
Maintaining reliability initiatives by concrete connection points to the program can ensure this progression of disconnection does not occur. The proposed method for maintaining this program integrity, "Intent Anchoring," is the creation and monitoring of two points of connection for each individual reliability tool to the program.
