RELIABILITY IS "QUALITY CHANGING OVER TIME"
The everyday usage term “quality of a product” is loosely taken to mean its inherent degree of excellence. In industry, this is made more precise by defining quality to be “conformance to requirements at the start of use”. Assuming the machine specifications and performance adequately capture customer requirements, the quality level can now be precisely measured by the fraction of machines operated that meet specifications.
But how many of these units still meet specifications after a week of operation? Or after a month, or at the end of the warranty period? That is where "reliability" comes in. Quality is a snapshot at the start of life and reliability is a motion picture of the day-by-day operation. Time-zero defects are manufacturing mistakes that escaped final test. The additional defects that appear over time are "reliability defects" or reliability fallout….. At Divigraph we make tools that tracks quality indicators over time and provide you with information that is easily interpreted and combined with other machine data to help you eliminate reliability fallouts.
Divigraph was established as an independent entity in 2009 by two passionate and dedicated engineers who combined their respective deep domain knowledge, expertise and skills to introduce to the market state-of-the-art solutions for machine monitoring and asset reliability.
