16.881 – Robust System Design Homework #9 Robust Design and Reliabilty Due Date: Thursday, 9 July, 1:05, 4-149 Objectives: Understand basic concepts of reliability engineering Understand the relationship of robust design to reliability Assignment 1) Given that for small time intervals t λ ( t ) t = Pr(The system will fail within the period t to t + ∆ t The product survives to time t ) R ( t ) = Pr(The product survives to time t ) dF ( t ) = Pr( The s ystem will fail within the period t to t + dt ) R ( t ) + F ( t ) = 1 Prove that t R ( t ) = e 0 λ ( ξ ) d ξ 2) What form will the reliability curve R ( t ) take if the early failure region is removed through “burn-in” and the wear-out region is avoided by retiring the product before the wear-out period? How is this form of R ( t ) related to a Weibull distribution? 1 of 2

Unformatted text preview: process with increments of one second and a variance of 0.1V 2 . If the voltage of the power supply varies from nominal by more than 3V, it will cause the entire system to fail. What is the expected value of time to failure of the system? If the variance is cut to 0.03V per increment, what is the expected value of time to failure of the system? You may demonstrate your anwers using closed form mathematics or simulations. 4) The unreliability F(t) i of each element of the system below was reduced by a factor of two (through robust design of course). What was the approximate effect on system reliability R(t)? 2 1 3 4 This system will fail if subsystem 1 fails or if subsystems 2,3, and 4 fail. 2 of 2...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
