The successful student will understand how to use accelerated test principles that can improve hardware reliability for systems. Practical design techniques are encouraged with useful examples and case histories that supplement the theory. Design engineers and their managers who are responsible for design and development of long-lived systems. ALT can be a costly and time consuming activity, it is best to get it right the first time.
This seminar begins with basic theory and expands with the practical examples to cover a wide range of problems with setting-up and analyzing an ALT. ALT is actually a series of tests that can uncover failure modes and hidden flaws before a product is released. Learn easy and practical ways to approach a number of common reliability problems. This course is engineering oriented.
