y su propuesta MEOST (pruebas de sobreesfuerzo en multiples ambientes), por ser el principal tema de este texto.
Aqui proponen su metodologia llamada prueba de sobre-esfuerzos en multiples ambientes (MEOST, siglas en ingles), esta toma parte de metodologias de pruebas fisicas de componentes para calcular vida util o limites de tolerancias (temperaturas, presiones, vibraciones, etc.), usadas por Ingenieria para pruebas de componentes, pilotos o cualquier otra validacion de cambios en el proceso o subensambles, cabe reconocer que lo ponen en terminos accesibles no-ingenieriles.
The authors are promoting a technique called "multiple environment overstress tests," or MEOST, which they claim "can dramatically improve reliability right at the design stage, in hours, instead of waiting months and years to confirm unreliability in the field." They maintain that reliability is a design "responsibility, not a quality function" because design, they stress, has a tremendous effect on product cost and performance: they claim that 70-75% of cost and >90% of field failures are related to design.
