              This book, which is logically broken into five sections, describes the reliability process in detail and provides useful tools, forms and spreadsheets for implementing the process. The first section discusses why product reliability will be a requirement for survival in the 21st ...century. Over the past few decades, most manufacturers have mastered the skills needed to produce quality products; however, the same cannot be said about product reliability. This section focuses on the necessity for companies to have effective reliability programs in order to compete in the 21st century. In the second section of the book, the mystery surrounding reliability is unraveled. The reliability process is presented, reliability concepts are discussed and the "reliability toolbox" is explained. This section closes with a discussion on why companies fail after attempting to implement a reliability program. In the third section of the book three steps in successfully implementing a reliability program are discussed. The three steps are: establishing a reliability lab, hiring the right people and implementing the reliability process. The book addresses how the size of a company can impact on implementation decisions and a decision matrix is presented for small, medium and large companies. In section four, the book presents in detail the reliability process along with the tools and techniques needed for implementation. The material is presented in a way that is easy to understand and the process is readily transferable to any organization. The fifth section adds all new content on DfR guidelines.

              Abstract: In some biological systems, the environmental conditions that are optimal for microbial growth differ from the optimal conditions optimal for producing a desired metabolite. If production of this metabolite were the process objective, one could continuously operate a re...actor system at the optimal production conditions. However, for a given reactor volume, changing the conditions periodically could increase overall production of the desired metabolite. This is possible since, due to higher growth rates under the optimal growth conditions, one could operate the system at significantly higher flowrates and, thus, obtain more product A system involving E. coli mutant LCB898 was used as a model system. Under anaerobic conditions this bacterium will produce large amounts of d-lactic acid, whereas under aerobic conditions, this bacterium will grow faster. The possibility of increasing total lactate production by cycling dissoved oxygen was investigated. Before any optimization work could be done, an adequate model for describing the behavior of this system under both steady-state and transient conditions had to be developed and tested. Such a model was developed using batch and continuous data and then tested by comparison with shifts between conditions. A method for determining the optimal waveform for the proposed cycling was developed by extending previous work by Lyberatos and Svoronos. The method involved Carleman linearization of the model equations around a steady state and subsequent development of a term for the performance measure. The system studied oscillated between purely aerobic and anaerobic metabolisms with no intermediate conditions. Thus, an imaginary steady state of intermediate metabolism had to be used for linearization. In numerical simulation of the determined optimal cycling, significant improvement over strictly anaerobic operation was found. Experimental verification of this was performed and improvement, though not as significant as th
