Development Common Problems of Reliability Application in the Automotive and Other Industries 2008-01-1216

In a real life situation the product's reliability depends on many factors. Practical methodology of taking these factors into account has a common base. This paper analyzes the current situation of common problems in reliability application in different areas of industry such as automotive, aerospace, aircraft, off-highway, civil engineering, naval engineering, farm machinery, etc. The important common problems relate to the connection and interconnections of:
  • reliability (durability, maintainability) with quality during a given time;
  • reliability with simulation;
  • reliability with safety;
  • reliability with human factors;
  • and others.
This paper also demonstrates how one can solve these problems and increase reliability through the use of interdisciplinary systems of systems approach which helps to take into account the above connections and interconnections.
