Robust design can significantly improve a producer’s competitive ability to deliver high-quality products with low development cycle time, quality loss, failure cost, and tolerance cost. However, during usage by a consumer, the functional performance of a product or some of its components may change as use time passes, leading to unexpected product failure that is usually costly in both time and money. The cost of these failures may influence the determination of optimal use time and optimal… CONTINUE READING
