Chapter 5. Road Map for Reliability Development
The design for reliability starts early in product development and continues into production, service, and customer support. The details of your project initiative depend on the nature of the product and its technical challenges. Certainly, designs must be based on customers’ requirements as well as on the needs of other stakeholders such as manufacturing, service, and your supply chain. Competitive markets have strong voices also. In this chapter we discuss what must be accomplished to get the reliability results required for your business and your customers. Robustness development and reliability growth activities are mapped to the phases of the product’s development process.
