Supplier Assessment

Reliability Engineering Services

Identify the best supplier for your organization

Before your company launches an electronic product, you have to think of everything: What would happen to your company’s reputation if your product underperformed? If your product failed, could it cause physical harm?

Product reliability is essential for success, and Accelerated Life Testing makes it possible to answer these questions before your launch. This process accelerates testing by increasing stress on a device to induce and accumulate damage faster than in the field. From there, you can better understand the cause of the failure. Ultimately, you can accurately simulate the extreme circumstances a device may experience in a real-world environment, leading to improved product performance, faster time to market, and reduced warranty costs. 

We leverage our relationships with over 1,000 companies across multiple electronics markets to expose design weaknesses and identify solutions to those inefficiencies. Our expert reliability team determines which stresses and tests to apply, how to set appropriate test parameters, and how to interpret the results. This leads to efficient, accurate, and streamlined remedies for any design flaws — and improved product performance for your company.

Case Study

Manufacturing Audit of Circuit Board Coatings and Curing Process Increases Yield to 90%

A consumer electronics manufacturer was getting 70% yields from one of their factories. They identified a delay between 1 minute and 5 minutes for full power-on of their unit after pressing the power switch, and suspected that a batch of their boards was not conformally coated properly, causing the problem. The company had two factories: one to manufacture surface mound circuit boards and another to assemble the final product. The company requested that Ansys - DfR perform an audit of their manufacturer’s processes in both factories to ensure quality.
