Title: The implementation of a field reliability database
Authors: Jones, Jeffrey A.
Issue Date: 1994
Publisher: © J.A. Jones
Abstract: In 1984 the International Electronics Reliability Institute (IERI) at Loughborough University ofTechnology (LUT), then the component technology group (CfG), started to address the problem of collecting field reliability information and storing it in a database in order to provide analysis of the way in which components and systems behave in the field. This database was devised by the members of CTG with the assistance of a number of industrial partners. The database was created and stored on the university's mainframe computers. In 1988 these computers were replaced with more modem equipment which was no longer compatible with the initial version of the database and so the database was re-implemented using a new hardware/software combination. At this time the opportunity was taken to review the choice of database management system, the structure of the data, the database administration and operation and the forms of data analysis performed. This thesis describes this review and re-implementation process.
