DESIGN FOR RELIABILITY HANDBOOK 1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Design for Reliability (DFR) process blends aspects of statistics, probability and reliability theory, and engineering analysis throughout a product lifecycle to evaluate, predict, and verify the application of robust design. Through application of DFR practices, the demand for highly-reliable systems can be met while insuring that the latest methods for the assessment of robust design and reliability risk-management are properly addressed. This document aims to discuss, in brief, the mathematic and engineering approaches involved in the DFR process. It is designed to provide the next level of detail following the current GEIA-STD-0009 "Reliability Program Standard for Systems Design, Development, and Manufacturing", which covers the "what to do" of design and building inherently reliable systems. While not directly intended to be a step-by-step guide, the details contained here within introduce the stepped approach to analyzing materiel from conceptual design through production. Incorporation of the applicable design processes will help guarantee a robust final design while limiting design lifecycle time and cost. Due to the brevity of this report, detailed development of underlying theory procedural steps is not provided. More extensive details are available in the cited literature or through the authors of this document. Comments, suggestions, or questions on this document should be addressed to the U.S. Army Materiel System Analysis Activity (AMSAA), ATTN: RDAM-LR, 392 Hopkins Road Aberdeen Proving Ground MD, 21005-5071, or emailed to the AMSAA Webmaster, apgr-amsa-akwebmaster@conus.army.mil. 1
