Example text

Carefully test new designs. Perform analyses of data received from the field. Pay attention to data received from the field when making modifications and improvements. In the case of critical parameters, consider using safety margins of three to six standard deviations. Consider diagnosis of critical items. Include facilities for inspection in the design. Introduce redundancy whenever necessary. Pay attention to the maintenance aspect with respect to reliability (Active Maintenance). Take into account the effects of transport, handling and storage.

Reporting failures in use might well establish the shortcomings in one particular part, and so indicate how a minor and inexpensive modification could produce a substantial improvement in reliability. While it is true that information on a particulax failure will usually get back to the manufacturers eventually if the failure is sufficiently widespread, they may in the meanwhile have produced and sold a substantial number of equipments which will be liable to the same failure. Furthermore, they may never hear about other failures which might otherwise have been eliminated in later models.

This time is often designated MTTR (mean time to repair). Only by taking both these factors into account can the user estimate for how long within a given period an equipment is likely to be available, and how serious the effects of non-availability during maintenance and breakdown are likely to be.
