Techniques for failure avoidance in early stages of design
Techniques for failure aviodance [sic] in early stages of design
"Component selection can be very difficult for designers, since there can be, and often are, more solutions than a designer, or even a team of designers can investigate in a practical amount of time. The tools presented here can help designers who wish to use failure analysis as the major ranking criterion to rank solutions. One tool allows for intelligent component selection at the design level by investigating the component's impact on the overall failure mode distribution...The second tool presented combines techniques that are mutually beneficial to designers into an automated algorithm that selects an optimum component combination for a set of defined functional needs"--Abstract, leaf iv.
