Failure Mode Avoidance through Design for Six Sigma and Transfer Function 2006-01-0999

Avoiding failure modes is the ultimate goal of reliability engineering [1, 2]. Design for Six Sigma [3] coupled with Transfer Function [4] analysis is a process that can help to achieve this goal at every stage of product design process.
