Keynote Address: Robust Engineering Design-by-Reliability 2003-01-0141

This Keynote Address compares the deterministic design methodology, which is being used predominantly currently, with the probabilistic design methodology which enables the designer to design components to a desired reliability goal at a desired confidence level. It is demonstrated that the probabilistic design-by-reliability methodology is more economical plus it assures that there will be fewer product failures, fewer product recalls and more satisfied customers. It is urged that, henceforth, this design-by-reliability methodology be taught in our Colleges of Engineering instead of the inefficient deterministic one.
