Casting, annealing, assembly) on the reliability of the part or component produced. Reliability management deals with the various management issues in the context of managing the design, manufacture, and/or operation and maintenance of reliable products and systems. Here the emphasis is on the business viewpoint, because unreliability has consequences in cost, time wasted, and, in certain cases, the welfare of an individual or even the security of a nation. Some of the items on this list involve many other issues, including prediction, assessment, optimization, and related topics.

These include engineering design, materials science, process design, stress analysis, failure analysis, test design, accelerated testing, operations analysis, and many others. 1 Systems Approach Fundamental to the study of reliability is the systems approach. This provides a framework for integration of the different technical, commercial, and managerial aspects of the study. The systems approach involves system characterization, modeling, analysis, and optimization. In the following sections we discuss the systems approach in general, modeling aspects, and some important qualitative tools and quantitative techniques used in reliability studies.
