Application of accelerated life testing in human reliability analysis

  title={Application of accelerated life testing in human reliability analysis},
  author={Rasoul Jamshidi and Mohammad Ebrahim Sadeghi},
Today we see comprehensive automation and consequently the reduction of the human role in most manufacturing systems. Although these efforts reduce human error and increase product quality, humans still have an important effect on quality in manufacturing systems. Human factors (i.e., fatigue, recovery) can have a significant impact on the performance of the overall system [1]. In order to prevent or reduce human fatigue and disorders, human reliability and its related issue are studied and…

Quality prediction for reconfigurable manufacturing systems via human error modelling

Application of the model to an industrial case study demonstrated its ability to assess, early in the system design and development stage, the probability of errors resulting from human involvement, which is critical in investigating different improvement opportunities to achieve lower levels of errors owing to human involved, and hence higher quality.

Use of accelerated life tests on transmission belts for predicting product life, identifying better designs, materials and suppliers

In this study, a transmission belts were run at three different stress levels, which facilitate a better extrapolation of normally operated life and were found to be helpful in determining the better material and also in predicting the life of the transmission belt at the normal operating conditions.

Mathematical model of the occurrence of human error in manufacturing processes

This paper describes the development of a probabilistic model of human error that makes use of classical reliability concepts, such as a failure rate function, to represent substantial phenomena that play a significant role in the creation of errors in human work.

Reliability growth and forecasting for critical hardware through accelerated life testing

Results indicate that a well-executed ALT program is an effective method to achieve reliability growth and forecast steady-state reliability in telecommunication systems.

How Many Performance Shaping Factors are Necessary for Human Reliability Analysis

It has been argued that human reliability analysis (HRA) has expended considerable energy on creating detailed representations of human performance through an increasingly long list of performance
