An Industrial Physicist's Perspective on Reliability

Charles Recchia
Charles H Recchia, MBA, PhD has more than twenty-five years of product development, technical team management, and fundamental research experience with a special focus on reliability statistics of complex systems. He earned his doctorate in Solid-State Physics from The Ohio State University, and a Master of Business Administration degree from Babson College. Dr. Recchia acquired in-depth more


Basic concepts in reliability are viewed through the applied lens of various fundamental principles of physics. A useful framework is presented for treating failure mechanisms as probabilistic exceedances in a functional parameter space as probed by customer use conditions over time, with an emphasis on the foundational notions of reliability as they relate to thermodynamics, statistical physics, classical mechanics and quantum mechanics.
