Most commercial enterprises want some meaningful but simple metrics to measure, track and report part / product reliability, which link well to their business and/or engineering processes. An internal reliability measurement may sometimes be "defined" for that purposes. However, without careful consideration initially, the adopted non-conventional reliability metric may be lack of scientific sense, causing a lot of confusion and misunderstanding in calculation, reporting and communication. This talk presents you a case study and a good lesson learned.
