Lessons Learned for Effective Design Verification 2009-01-0559
The ultimate goal of reliability engineering is to prevent design failure modes in the field. Effective design verification can be a powerful tool toward achieving this goal. Reducing development time, minimizing cost, and improving quality are further challenges which drive effective design verification.
This paper explains the key steps required to develop an effective design verification plan and report (DVP&R). In addition, lessons learned will be discussed using specific examples of undesirable practices. Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) verification phase requirements are also examined.
