PDfR in Electronics and Photonics

on April 13, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Speaker Dr. Ephraim Suhir
Topic Info
The PDfR concept proceeds from the recognition that nothing is perfect and that the difference between a highly reliable and an insufficiently reliable product is “merely” in the level of the probability of its failure. If this probability, evaluated for the anticipated loading conditions and the given time in operation, is not acceptable, SA can be effectively employed to determine what could/should be changed to improve the situation. The PDfR analysis enables one also to check if the product is not over-engineered, i.e., is not superfluously robust. If it is, it might be too costly.
