Reliability: 65 Years of History and Counting [Article]

December 1, 2015

by Anthony M. Smith and Samuel R. Paske Reliability is a recognized engineering discipline that has progressively upgraded and improved the makeup of the world for all of us to use and enjoy. It has been the primary force behind the currently acceptable performance of virtually every product in our homes, as well as those that we take for granted every day in areas such as transportation, power, water supply and communications. This is the story of how this technology came about and what you must learn from the journey. There are essentially three distinct periods of development and innovation in the evolution of reliable technology that occurred since the end of World War II. This article provides an overview of all three and closes with some thoughts on where to now.
