Achieving high product reliability has become increasingly vital for manufacturers in order to meet customer expectations amid the threat of strong global competition. Poor reliability can doom a product and jeopardize the reputation of a brand or company. Inadequate reliability also presents financial risks from warranty, product recalls, and potential litigation. When developing new products, it is imperative that manufacturers develop reliability specifications and utilize methods to predict and verify that those reliability specifications will be met. This presents a difficult challenge in many industries with short product cycles and compressed product development timeframes. This webinar provides an overview of quantitative methods for predicting product reliability from data gathered from physical testing or from field data.

Webinar Objectives


  • Understand key aspects of Reliability Data
  • Learn what an effective reliability goal/target looks like
  • Learn how reliability performance is typically measured (e.g. Reliability Statistics)
  • How to determine appropriate probability distributions to model failure data
  • How to use reliability models to predict reliability performance
  • How much data is needed to estimate or demonstrate reliability

Webinar Agenda


This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Reliability Concepts and Reliability Data
    • Reliability in Product and Process Development
    • Unique Characteristics of Reliability Data
    • Censored Data
    • Setting Reliability Targets
  • Probability and Statistics Concepts
    • Probability Distributions (e.g. Weibull, Lognormal, etc.)
    • Reliability and Failure Probability
    • Hazard Rate
    • Mean Time to Failure
    • Percentiles
  • Assessing & Selecting Parametric Models for Failure Time Distributions
    • Probability Plotting 
    • Identify the Best Distribution(s)
  • Parametric Estimation of Reliability Characteristics
    • Weibull Analysis (and other distributions)
    • Precision of Estimates/Confidence Intervals
  • Introduction to Reliability Test Planning
    • Reliability Estimation Test Plans
    • Reliability Demonstration Test Plans
