Role of Design Assurance in Complex Product Development

Electronic products are becoming more sophisticated in their functionality. In parallel, the customer is rightly demanding reliability performance far in excess of anything seen previously. This makes the role of the design assurance team an increasingly important one. This fact is illustrated by reference to the activities of the design assurance group at GEC-Marconi Research Centre. Highlighted are the extremes of design configuration for which structural and thermal performance need to be predicted -from a satellite ground station to a solder joint. A.T. Humphrey and D.J. Burrows
