Reliability of fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive optical components - Part 4: Product screening


Do you need a multi-user copy?




Describes product screening. A proper product screen is actually a process, not a test. As a process, it is maintained and constantly validated to ensure it achieves the purpose for which it was defined. This process is applied to a product in order to induce products with a known failure mechanism, to fail in a controlled situation before the product is deployed in the field. If this process is properly applied, then all infant mortality failures in the field, associated with the failure mechanism(s) for the screen, will be eliminated.
