Development of Reliability Engineering in China

  • Published : 2006.05.18


The Status quo of the reliability in China is described in this paper, a reliability surge is now spreading in China, covering the fields such as hardware, software, machinery and electronics. The reliability work in China was firstly conducted by the CEPREI Lab as far as early in the 1950s, and the reliability engineering in China has developed from the reliability of electronic products to that of machinery and non-electronic products, from hardware reliability to software reliability, from the attention to the reliability statistical test to emphasis on the reliability engineering test. Concern of Chinese companies about the reliability is the complete import of reliability engineering, the reliability testing, the software reliability and the reliability of lead-free soldering. Demonstration of reliability cases is given.
