Course Description: This two-hour webinar will be a detailed discussion on how to determine stress level comfort zones during HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Tests) and HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) testing. The webinar will go into depth to discuss different product types and what constitutes “Robust Design” for each. The instructor will cover numerous real-world examples of margins testing on various products.

The most difficult aspect of all environmental testing is how to relate the stress levels that are applied during the test to what they buy in long-term manufacturability and field reliability. This is a central topic that comes up time and time again during the Hobbs HALT & HASS and Reliability seminars.

A statistical approach will help the student to understand the terms “Frequency of Failure”, “Annual Failure Rate” and “Random Failures in Time.”

Robust product design is a progressive design methodology that is verified by HALT. Variations in supplier parts and manufacturing processes are screened and verified using HASS techniques. The instructor will go over proven and real-world examples of successful applications of statistical sampling utilizing the HASS method.

About your Instructor:  Aldo Fucinari has 42 years’ experience in design validation testing, electrical engineering and environmental testing and holds a BSCE degree in Computer Engineering. He has worked in various fields of engineering including reliability, verification and validation, process control, quality assurance, systems engineering, hardware, software QA and product development. He is currently a Principal Reliability Engineer with the reliability engineering team at Alcon Surgical R&D in Lake Forest California. He has previously been senior consultant for RapidDiscoverySystems.com environmental testing consultants where he worked with dozens of world class companies to implement design for reliability programs. The companies he worked with included bio-medical, computer, audio, aerospace, consumer electronics and automotive products.

At Seagate Aldo was part of the initial deployment of Seagate’s Design for Six Sigma program where he received certification as a Master Black Belt in DFSS and a Black Belt in Six Sigma process and transactional process. He was an instructor in Six Sigma, Design for Manufacturability and Lean Engineering.

Aldo has long-term experience with suppliers and manufacturers that are equipped to do full HASS and HASA testing. He worked extensively with Dr. Gregg Hobbs to implement high volume HASS testing and HALT testing systems globally and has been a senior consultant and instructor for Hobbs Engineering for over 10 years. He is a senior member of ASQ and a member of the Lean Product and Process Development Exchange.
