The webinar presentation “How to identify and mitigate reliability
risks in product development” is based on the book “Improving Product
Reliability and Software Quality – Strategies, Tools, Process and Implementation by Mark A. Levin, Ted T. Kalal and Jonathan Rodin 2019”. It walks through the reliability risk mitigation process for each of the five phases of product development: Concept Phase, Product Planning, Design & Development, Test & Validation and Product release & ramp. At each phase of product development, the activities for risk identification and mitigation are discussed along with the deliverables for success.
