HALT Technical Paper
Summary & Conclusions
As HALT takes only a few days to run and to implement its corrective action(s), and even if it takes a bit longer, this time would be far less than waiting for an RT to be run and to implement its corrective action(s). This paper discusses a mathematical model which can be a huge time and cost saver. By not performing life tests and simply doing an effective HALT, time and money will be saved.
Overview of AFR Estimator
The AFR Estimator is a patent pending mathematical model that, when provided with the appropriate HALT and product information,, will accurately estimate the product’s field inherent AFR or Actual Failure Rate. This methodology has been used on a number of products with significant positive financial results. This model will also provide HASS or HASA data for the detection of an outgoing quality process shift in time from a stated AFR.
