Reliability Solutions FAQs

My organisation invests a lot of money on reliability testing and we rarely find any defects, yet we know some of our products fail in the field. Where are we going wrong?

Effective reliability testing requires companies to identify the correct accelerated test programme for their specific circumstances. While many companies conduct reliability testing, too many companies rarely find the defects that lead not only to customer problems but financial and reputational damage.

Reliability Solutions applies 30 years’ experience to your problem to define the correct stress test approach for your needs. This methodical approach identifies the optimum ‘test strength’ necessary to detect reliability weaknesses in your product in the shortest possible time and using minimal sample sizes.

We have been using the same reliability test programme for a number of years. However our customers’ expectations are changing and we are not sure what we can do to improve our methods. Can Reliability Solutions help?

Instead, a more intelligent, sequential approach should be adopted where different techniques are used to stress the product to its highest level without causing damage or non-representative defects.
