Gestão da Manutenção 4 Reliability Growth The first prototypes produced during the development of a new complex system will contain: design. manufacturing and/or engineering deficiencies. Bernardo Almada-Lobo (2007) . Reliability growth is the improvement in the reliability of a product over a period of time due to changes in the product's design / manufacturing process. The prototypes are often subjected to a rigorous testing program. the initial reliability of the prototypes may be below the system's reliability goal or requirement. Problem areas are identified and appropriate corrective actions (or redesign) are taken.

Bernardo Almada-Lobo (2007) . a failure mode is a problem and root cause. The reliability growth test. design. repair and temporary fixes do not constitute reliability growth. Rework. production and operation processes. Therefore.Gestão da Manutenção 5 Reliability Growth Reliability growth occurs from corrective and/or preventive actions based on experience gained from failures and from analysis of the equipment. Reliability growth addresses failure modes. A corrective action takes place at the problem and root cause level. analysis and fix concept in design is applied by uncovering weaknesses during the testing stages and performing appropriate corrective actions before full-scale production.

that can be attained if the test is conducted long enough. The effectiveness of the corrective actions is part of the overall management strategy Bernardo Almada-Lobo (2007) .Gestão da Manutenção 6 Reliability Growth The initial MTBF is the value actually achieved by the basic reliability tasks. The growth potential is the MTBF. with the current management strategy.

Duane postulate: the failure rate is linear on ln-ln scale. Crow noted that the Duane model could be stochastically represented as a Weibull process. allowing for statistical procedures to be used in the application of this model in reliability growth. The reliability growth pattern for the Crow model is exactly the same pattern as for the Duane postulate: the cumulative number of failures is linear when plotted on ln-ln scale. Unlike the Duane postulate the Crow model is statistically based. Bernardo Almada-Lobo (2007) . Crow model: the failure intensity of the underlying NHPP is linear when plotted on ln-ln scale.Gestão da Manutenção 13 Crow Model Larry H.
