This paper examines and discusses past, present and future considerations of self-repairing products. Descriptive terms are carefully defined for seven possible degrees of self-repair. Basic design requirements to achieve the fourth and fifth degrees of self-repair are described. Reliability enhancing, endurance and life considerations of the various degrees of self-repair are reviewed. Current work being performed in the broad field of self-repair is cited and briefly discussed. The paper concludes with the hope that more definitive attention will be given the predestined field of self-repair to achieve higher reliability in our products.
