Reliability Simulations for Electronic Assemblies: Virtual Qualification, Reliability Assurance, Maintenance Scheduling and Obsolescence Mitigation

by Ed Dodd


Reliability Physics simulations for electronic assemblies has matured to become best practice during specification and design. However, the potential advantages of these simulations to programs and integrators are more far reaching. This paper will explore how the simulations can be used for virtual qualification, reliability assurance, maintenance scheduling and obsolescence management.
