A software tool, "Integrated Reliability Solutions" (IRS) has been developed, based upon the methodologies that have been applied to solving mechanical reliability problems of electronic components. The tool provides a system approach to reliability modeling. This tool enables significant reductions in design cycle time, warranty costs, and time required for experimentation and accelerated life testing. It also enables robust design and optimized manufacturing processes, and the timely and accurate innovation, evaluation and validation of new technologies.
