applicant will develop, coordinate and conduct technical reliability studies
and evaluations of engineering design concepts and design of experiments (DOE)
constructs. Recommends design or test methods and statistical process control
procedures for achieving required levels of product reliability. Complies and
analyzes performance reports and process control statistics; investigates and
analyzes relevant variables potentially affecting product and processes.
Ensures that corrective measures meet acceptable reliability standards.
Analyzes preliminary plans and develops reliability engineering programs to
achieve company, customer and governmental agency reliability objectives. May
develop mathematical models to identify units, batches or processes posing
excessive failure risks. As necessary, proposes changes in design or
formulation to improve system and/or process reliability. May determine units
and/or batches requiring environmental testing, and specifies minimum number of
samples to obtain statistically valid data.
