... a 2-day course for developers of electronic products:
The objective of this course is to provide design engineers with practical knowledge on how to prevent or at least to
reduce the occurrence of failures in electronic products. The course combines conventional wisdom with a modern
approach to reliability engineering, indicating that many “industry standard” practices are incorrect and misleading.
It argues that the focus of reliability engineering should be on value adding “engineering” activities, and not on
“accounting” activities. Reliability can be defined as the “absence of failures". The emphasis of reliability engineering
should therefore be on "failure prevention" during development and production, and not on "failure correction" during operations. Mathematics and statistics play a minor role in the course, with emphasis placed on tools and techniques applicable during the development phase of electronic products. Practical examples are used to illustrate “how” to
perform individual reliability tasks.
