DF X: Front End Loading Tactical Approach
Distinction Between Reliability and Quality
Quality assures that the production line will
work after assembly and as designed.
Reliability provides the probability that the
production line will perform its intended
function for a designated period of time
without failure under specified conditions.
Reliability looks at how long the equipment will work as
designed, which is a very different objective than that of
traditional quality control.
Different tools and models apply to reliability that do not
necessarily apply to quality and vice versa.
