Quality and Reliability
We can define quality as an essential attribute of something. For a product, quality is a measure of the specification to verify expected performance during operation. Quality can be controlled and measured. 

Reliability is the probability that a device will perform its required function under stated conditions for a specific time.
Reliability is a subset of the quality established first during the product development stage. It is the probability of a product failure. We can ensure reliability in establishing quality or assuring the quality by estimating reliability before a product enters the market.
The reliability is predicted based on the quality of its parts that is one of the several criteria to ensure adequate security.
Yet, what makes a reliable product?
Here are some answers below:

  • Good engineering design practices,

  • Essential components and parts with maximum reliability,

  • Do a quick MTBF estimate during the product development step,

  • Build quality verification standards and procedures.

  • Provide a test plan for safety, EMC, and reliability procedures.

  • Complete product certification before marketing.


Do we need to understand the basics of reliability? 

  • Products began to get more complex,

  • Many unexpected failures occur during the first year of operation,

  • Evaluate the design according to various environmental conditions and quality parts,

  • Determine the reliability analysis to predict failures


Do we need to perform reliability for a product?

  • Company and product reputation

  • Customer satisfaction

  • Warranty-related costs

  • Product profitability
