Reliability Engineering Standards

More about Reliability Engineering on Wikipedia

MIL-STD-2164 Environment Stress Screening Process for Electronic Equipment:

This document defines the requirements for ESS of electronic equipment, including environmental test conditions, duration of exposure, procedures, equipment operation, actions taken upon detection of defects, and test documentation. The document provides for a uniform ESS to be utilized for effectively disclosing manufacturing defects in electronic equipment.

MIL-STD-2074 Failure Classification for Reliability Testing:

This document establishes criteria for classification of failures occurring during reliability testing. This classification into relevant or nonrelevant categories allows the proper generation of MTBF reports. This document applies to any reliability test, including, but not limited to, tests performed in accordance with MIL-STD-781.

MIL-STD-1686B Electrostatic Discharge Control Program for Protection of Electrical and Electronic Parts, Assemblies and Equipment:

The purpose of this standard is to establish the requirements for an ESD control program to minimize the effects of ESD on parts, assemblies, and equipment. This standard defines the requirements for an ESD control program for electrical and electronic parts, assemblies, and equipment, susceptible to damage from ESD. It covers identification, testing, classification, assembly and equipment design criteria protected work areas, handling procedures, training, marking of documentation and hardware, protective covering, packaging and marking, and installation for assemblies and equipment. Also included are quality assurance requirements, data requirements, audits and reviews. Refer to MIL-HDBK-263 for how-to information.

MIL-STD-1629A Procedures for Performing a Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis:

This document shows how to perform a Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA). It establishes requirements and procedures for performing a FMECA to systematically evaluate and document, by item failure mode analysis, the potential impact of each functional or hardware failure on mission success, personnel and system safety, system performance, maintainability, and maintenance requirements. Each potential failure is ranked by the severity of its effect in order that appropriate corrective actions may be taken to eliminate or control the high risk items. It details the functional block diagram modeling method, defines severity classification and criticality numbers. It provides sample formats for a FMEA, criticality analysis, FMEA and criticality analysis maintainability information sheet, and damage mode and effects analysis sheet. The document also provides several examples.

MIL-STD-756B Reliability Modeling and Prediction:

This standard establishes uniform procedures and ground rules for the generating mission reliability and basic reliability models and predictions for electronic, electrical, electromechanical, mechanical, and ordnance systems and equipments. Model complexity may range from a complete system to the simplest subdivision of a system. It details the methods for determining service use (life cycle), creation of the reliability block diagram, construction of the mathematical model for computing the item reliability. Some simple explanations on the applicability and suitability of the various prediction sources and methods are included.

MIL-HDBK-338 Electronic Reliability Design Handbook:

This handbook provides procuring activities and contractors with an understanding of the concepts, principles, and methodologies covering all aspects of electronic systems reliability engineering and cost analysis as they relate to the design, acquisition, and deployment of equipment or systems. Currently a two-volume set, it discusses the entire subject, heavily emphasizing the reasons for the reliability discipline. It includes general information, referenced documents, definitions, reliability theory, component reliability design considerations, application guidelines, specification control during acquisition, logistic support, failure reporting and analysis, reliability and maintainability theory, reliability specification allocation and prediction, reliability engineering design guidelines, reliability data collection and analysis, demonstration and growth, software reliability, systems reliability engineering, production and deployment reliability and maintainability (R&M), and R&M management considerations.

Note: This is one of the best standard i have ever read.It is very useful indeed.

MIL-HDBK-189 Reliability Growth Management:

This document is designed for both managers and analysts covering everything from simple fundamentals to detailed technical analysis. Included are concepts and principles of reliability growth, advantages of managing reliability growth, and guidelines and procedures used to manage reliability growth. It allows the development of a plan that will aid in developing a final system that meets requirements and lowers the life-cycle cost of the fielded system. The document includes sections on benefits, concepts, engineering analysis, and growth models.

MIL-HDBK-H 108 Sampling Procedures and Tables for Life and Reliability Testing:
(Based on Exponential Distribution) This handbook provides procedures and tables based on the exponential distribution for life and reliability testing. It includes definitions required for the use of the life test sampling plans and procedures; general description of life test sampling plans; life tests terminated upon occurrence of preassigned number of failures; life tests terminated at preassigned time; and sequential life test sampling plans.

MIL-STD-781D Reliability Design Qualification and Production Acceptance Tests: Exponential/ Distribution This document covers the requirements and provides details for reliability testing during the development, qualification, and production of systems and equipment with an exponential time-to-failure distribution. It establishes the tailorable requirements for reliability testing performed during integrated test programs specified in MIL-STD-785. Task descriptions for Reliability Development/ Growth Testing (RD/GT), Reliability Qualification Testing (RQT), Production Reliability Acceptance Tests (PRAT), and Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) are defined. Test time is stated in multiples of the design Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF). Specifying any two of three parameters, i.e., lower test MTBF, upper test MTBF, or their ratio, given the desired decision risks, determines the test plan to be utilized. This standard is applicable to six broad categories of equipment, distinguished according to their field service applications.

Hello sir,

I do not know how I could reach so I am hoping this will work through comments. I have stumbled upon a past post about electrical books by searching for this book in pdf format that you seemed to have:

Electrical Machines, Drives and Power Systems Solutions Manual
by Theodore Wildi

Could you please re-upload it? I have this book in paper form and I am getting tired of having to carry this brick around. I would be very thankful! Have a good day.

Hello sir,

Thanks for posting so many books. I would like to request for the following books ( and solution manuals,if possible):

Linear Control Systems by Norman Nise (5th or 4th Edition)

Electric Drives by Ned Mohan.

Thanks in advance.

I'll be checking this blog everyday.

Again, thank you!
