Develops, coordinates and conducts technical reliability studies and evaluations of engineering design concepts and design of experiments (DOE) constructs. Recommends design or test methods and statistical process control procedures for achieving required levels of product reliability. Complies and analyzes performance reports and process control statistics; investigates and analyzes relevant variables potentially affecting product and processes. Ensures that corrective measures meet acceptable reliability standards. Analyzes preliminary plans and develops reliability engineering programs to achieve company, customer and governmental agency reliability objectives. May develop mathematical models to identify units, batches or processes posing excessive failure risks. As necessary, proposes changes in design or formulation to improve system and/or process reliability. May determine units and/or batches requiring environmental testing, and specifies minimum number of samples to obtain statistically valid data.
Typical duties: Prepare product reliability plans, establish requirements for and monitor reliability programs; develop reliability trade-off studies; perform or review reliability analyses; assess performance with respect to requirements; evaluate effectiveness of the failure reporting, analysis, and corrective action implementation; prepare reports; support logistic activities and reporting; support system and design teams; establish reliability models and utilize models for systems and subsystems analysis.
Must have a Bachelor of Science degree with equivalent course work in Electrical or Electronic Engineering, Physics, or an equivalent field, and typically 25 years of experience in electronic systems reliability activities. Experience must include digital, analog, or RF design and analysis, such as Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), Worst Case Analysis (WCA), Electronic Parts Stress Analysis (PSA), Single-Events Effects Analysis (SEEA), reliability assessment, modeling, prediction trade off studies, system evaluations; failure reporting, analysis, and corrective action; use of computer aided engineering tools.
