DESIGN FOR RELIABILITY HANDBOOK TECHNICAL REPORT NO. TR-2011-24
This document aims to discuss, in brief, the mathematic and engineering approaches involved in the DFR process. It is designed to provide the next level of detail following the current GEIA-STD-0009 “Reliability Program Standard for Systems Design, Development, and Manufacturing”, which covers the “what to do” of design and building inherently reliable systems.
Design for Reliability Processes - Early in the design processes, Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) is utilized to expose early prototypes and existing components to the full range of expected operating conditions, within a controlled environment.
