Reliability is a major aspect of any product as it affects not only the producer but can grossly affect the consumer. This is particularly true for manned and unmanned applications including such systems as cars, aircraft, manufacturing plants. This presentation provides a high level view of the practical physics that affect the reliability of a variety of parts used in today’s systems using examples found in large and small scale systems. The assessment of various failure mechanisms as applied to specific designs, can aid in identifying what drives failures for those designs and lead to solutions to eliminate or mitigate those failures. Topics include failure mechanisms, failure modes and effects, failure models and identification of tools needed to perform the basic tasks of assessment, allocation, and analysis of the reliability of parts and systems.
