Statistics Seminars: Reliability Enhancement Modelling of Variant Product Design

Presented by John Quigley (Strathclyde),

9 May 2003 00:00 in CM221

"Models to estimate reliability of engineering systems are often used in isolation and so do not inform the design process. Consequently predictions are not trusted to provide useful reliability forecasts or to provide insight into ways in which the product might be enhanced. Given changing business practices, there is an increasing need to ensure reliability is built in during design. A modelling framework that was motivated by experience in the aerospace industry is presented to support this process. The underpinning logic and application to industrial cases are described and the use of the models is reflected upon with suggestions for future inprovements."
