Robust Design Methodology For Reliability from the Author: Bo Bergman. Based on deep theoretical as well as practical experience in Reliability and Quality Sciences, Robust Design Methodology for Reliability constructively addresses practical reliability problems. It offers a comprehensive design theory for reliability, utilizing robust design methodology and six sigma frameworks. In particular, the relation between un-reliability and variation and uncertainty is explored and reliability improvement measures in early product development stages are suggested. Many companies today utilise design for Six Sigma (DfSS) for strategic improvement of the design process, but often without explicitly describing the reliability perspective; this book explains how reliability design can relate to and work with DfSS and illustrates this with real–world problems. The contributors advocate designing for robustness, i.e. insensitivity to variation in the early stages of product design development. Methods for rational treatment of uncertainties in model assumptions are also presented. This book promotes a new approach to reliability thinking that addresses the design process and proneness to failure in the design phase via sensitivity to variation and uncertainty; includes contributions from both academics and industry practitioners with a broad scope of expertise, including quality science, mathematical statistics and reliability engineering; takes the innovative approach of promoting the study of variation and uncertainty as a basis for reliability work; includes case studies and illustrative examples that translate the theory into practice. Robust Design Methodology for Reliability provides a starting point for new thinking in practical reliability improvement work that will appeal to advanced designers and reliability specialists in academia and industry including fatigue engineers, product development and process/ quality professionals, especially those interested in and/ or using the DfSS framework.

Statistical Robust Design from the Author: Magnus Arner. A UNIQUELY PRACTICAL APPROACH TO ROBUST DESIGN FROM A STATISTICAL AND ENGINEERING PERSPECTIVE Variation in environment, usage conditions, and the manufacturing process has long presented a challenge in product engineering, and reducing variation is universally recognized as a key to improving reliability and productivity. One key and cost-effective way to achieve this is by robust design – making the product as insensitive as possible to variation. With Design for Six Sigma training programs primarily in mind, the author of this book offers practical examples that will help to guide product engineers through every stage of experimental design: formulating problems, planning experiments, and analysing data. He discusses both physical and virtual techniques, and includes numerous exercises and solutions that make the book an ideal resource for teaching or self-study. • Presents a practical approach to robust design through design of experiments. • Offers a balance between statistical and industrial aspects of robust design. • Includes practical exercises, making the book useful for teaching. • Covers both physical and virtual approaches to robust design. • Supported by an accompanying website (www.wiley/com/go/robust) featuring MATLAB® scripts and solutions to exercises. • Written by an experienced industrial design practitioner. This book’s state of the art perspective will be of benefit to practitioners of robust design in industry, consultants providing training in Design for Six Sigma, and quality engineers. It will also be a valuable resource for specialized university courses in statistics or quality engineering.

Exploring Uncertainty from the Author: Sabina Jeschke. Der Umgang mit Ungewissheit und Unsicherheit besitzt in allen Wissenschaftsdisziplinen und -kulturen hohe Relevanz. Insgesamt zeichnet sich die Tendenz ab, dass "schwach strukturierte" Szenarien sowohl an Bedeutung als auch an "Erfolg" gewinnen und Konzepte, die sich gezielte Inkaufnahme und Umgang mit Unsicherheit auszeichnen, aufgrund höherer Geschwindigkeit und Flexibilität häufig "deterministischeren" Konzepten überlegen sind. Vor diesem Hintergrund stellt sich die Frage nach eienr fachübergreifenden Sichtweiseauf das Kozept der Ungewissheit, insbesondere auch vor dem Hintergrund unterschiedlicher internationaler, disziplinärer und geographischer Kulturen. Dieses Fachbuch beleuchtet das gleichsam grundlegende wie zukunftsweisende Thema Ungewissheit auf hohem wissenschaftlichen Niveau, wichtige Impulse für die multi-, inter- und transdisziplinäre Bearbeitung des Forschungsfeldes werden diskutiert.​

Guide To Load Analysis For Durability In Vehicle Engineering from the Author: P. Johannesson. The overall goal of vehicle design is to make a robust and reliable product that meets the demands of the customers and this book treats the topic of analysing and describing customer loads with respect to durability. Guide to Load Analysis for Vehicle and Durability Engineering supplies a variety of methods for load analysis and also explains their proper use in view of the vehicle design process. In Part I, Overview, there are two chapters presenting the scope of the book as well as providing an introduction to the subject. Part II, Methods for Load Analysis, describes useful methods and indicates how and when they should be used. Part III, Load Analysis in view of the Vehicle Design Process, offers strategies for the evaluation of customer loads, in particular characterization of customer populations, which leads to the derivation of design loads, and finally to the verification of systems and components. Key features: • Is a comprehensive collection of methods for load analysis, vehicle dynamics and statistics • Combines standard load data analysis methods with statistical aspects on deriving test loads from surveys of customer usage • Sets the methods used in the framework of system dynamics and response, and derives recommendations for the application of methods in engineering practice • Presents a reliability design methodology based on statistical evaluation of component strength and customers loads • Includes case studies and illustrative examples that translate the theory into engineering practice Developed in cooperation with six European truck manufacturers (DAF, Daimler, Iveco, MAN, Scania and Volvo) to meet the needs of industry, Guide to Load Analysis for Vehicle and Durability Engineering provides an understanding of the current methods in load analysis and will inspire the incorporation of new techniques in the design and test processes.

Structural Design Optimization Considering Uncertainties from the Author: Yannis Tsompanakis. Uncertainties play a dominant role in the design and optimization of structures and infrastructures. In optimum design of structural systems due to variations of the material, manufacturing variations, variations of the external loads and modelling uncertainty, the parameters of a structure, a structural system and its environment are not given, fixed coefficients, but random variables with a certain probability distribution. The increasing necessity to solve complex problems in Structural Optimization, Structural Reliability and Probabilistic Mechanics, requires the development of new ideas, innovative methods and numerical tools for providing accurate numerical solutions in affordable computing times. This book presents the latest findings on structural optimization considering uncertainties. It contains selected contributions dealing with the use of probabilistic methods for the optimal design of different types of structures and various considerations of uncertainties. The first part is focused on reliability-based design optimization and the second part on robust design optimization. Comprising twenty-one, self-contained chapters by prominent authors in the field, it forms a complete collection of state-of-the-art theoretical advances and applications in the fields of structural optimization, structural reliability, and probabilistic computational mechanics. It is recommended to researchers, engineers, and students in civil, mechanical, naval and aerospace engineering and to professionals working on complicated costs-effective design problems.
