  • The Heart of a Reliability Program

    The heart of a reliability program for a complex mechanism is early detection of design weaknesses by the performance and analysis of environmental test experiments on prototype or pilot models of major parts of the mechanism. Such a program must be carried out jointly by design engineers, experts in environmental testing, and statisticians thoroughly versed in the practice of experimental design; it must be completed before the onset of scheduled production.

    -Missiles with built-in recoverability features have been of interest to most missile firms and many related firms for some time. In order to evaluate the adequacy of recoverable missile performance, it is frequently necessary to answer such questions as, ``With what probability will m such missiles yield a total of N or more successful flights?'' or, ``How many missiles should be allocated to a test program in which N or more successful flights must be realized with probability Q?'' Answers to these questions are obtained in terms of three basic reliability characteristics: 1. probability of a successful flight, 2. probability of recovering after a successful flight, and 3. probability of recovering after an unsuccessful flight. In addition, a decision rule is derived for selecting the ``best'' reliability program. View full abstract»

  • Increased System Worth Through Reliability Design Review

    It is the purpose of this paper to present the results, conclusions and recommendations of the analysis of electronic equipment to provide the optimum system worth, with regard to reliability and performance. Additional parameters set up in the three mathematical regimes are minimum weight, minimum geometric space envelope, schedule time delays, and cost trade-offs. This paper further proposes a methodical engineered system which attaches numerical quantities and mathematical relationships which may be measured and compared to parameters determining electronic equipment system worth. Value engineering concepts are thus generalized for electronic equipment to include many significant, parameters for optimum system worth -- with probability of success and performance replacing cost reductions as the prime yardstick for analytical trade-off comparisons. Forcing function inputs include transportation and handling loads, gunfire, takeoff, landing, flight maneuvers and catapult dynamic loads. These are mathematically treated as random vibrations, random shock, sustained acceleration, steady-state sinusoidal vibrations at resonance, sweep-cycle sinusoidal vibrations, and sudden impulse shock. The electronic equipment is analyzed under all probable conditions of the true environment plus the requisite conditions of the governing military specifications. Critical deflections, rotations, stresses and deformations are determined at all key substations of each dynamic subsystem of the electronic equipment. Each electronic tube is subdivided into the significant subsystems: 1. Cantilevered gun and assembly 2. Cantilevered heater and button assembly 3. Ceramic rods and helix 4. Outer envelope 5. Collector end 6. View full abstract»
