Practical Aspects of Reliability 620152

Automatic guidance of automobiles on high speed highways will require a high degree of reliability, and is an example of the principle that reliability is a design problem. The Athena guidance computer for the Titan missile had reliability specified as the most important design requirement. This paper discusses the functions of the reliability group and its relationships with other groups. The author also treats the problem of designing reliability into a system and circuits, including factors such as design assistance, design review, parts purchasing, and failure analysis.
