This webinar shows how to integrate Accelerated Stress Testing (AST), Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT), and Quantitative Accelerated Life Test into a physics of failure and problem prevention product development process. This approach to reliability features understanding customer needs, robust design, risk assessment, accelerated test to failure, failure analysis and corrective action. The webinar covers anticipating risks and failure modes, planning accelerated tests, applying the HALT methodology, finding empirical limits, using quantitative accelerated test, and failure analysis / corrective action. This approach to reliability engineering helps ensure robust products capable of operating reliably within the variability of operating stresses and manufacturing variation.
