ABSTRACT 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. The topics covered introduce the stepped approach to analyzing materiel from conceptual design through production. 15. SUBJECT TERMS 16. SECURITY CLASSIFICATION OF: 17.
