Reliability, Maintainability, Safety and Human Factor (RMSH) Considerations in the Automotive Industry 780053
The automotive industry is constantly faced with the challenge of satisfying consumer desires on one hand and complying with government regulations on the other hand. These requirements, when reduced to design parameters, require many design trade-offs. This paper presents a package of new design engineering ideas which can adequately meet this challenge and require very few design trade-offs.
The paper begins by pointing out that the reliability, maintainability, safety, and human factor (RMSH) considerations in design stages are the basis for meeting this challenge. Then five essential elements of the RMSH considerations in design process are discussed.
