Conference paper


The reliability of a technical product is an important purchase decision criterion. As technology advances the customers make permanently high demands on a product with regard to its function and reliability [1]. At the same time development times decrease. Shorter development times on the one hand and higher customer demands with regard to reliability on the other hand require an elaborated and optimized product design process. Therefore, reliability information should be integrated in this process, so that the design engineer is able to recognize weak points in his design.
