Design for reliability (DFR) is an industry-wide practice and a philosophy of considering reliability in an early stage of product design and development, to achieve a highly-reliable product while with sustainable cost. Physical of Failure (PoF) is recognized as a key approach of implementing DFR in a product design and development process.��The author will present a case study to illustrate predicting and identifying product failure early in the design phase with the help of a quantitative PoF model based analysis tool.
