Robust Design Maturity and Applicability Assessment

This is a tool for evaluating the current reliability maturity level as well as the applicability of reliability and robustness methods in your organisation. Please fill out the tables below. Once your answers have been submitted, you will have access to a results page, where you can print or download a visual representation of your answers. All answers will be kept strictly confidential and never associated with the name of you or your organisation.


ID Practices 1 2 3 4 5
1 Reliability requirements and planning
2 Training and development
3 Reliability analysis
4 Reliability testing
5 Supply chain management
6 Failure data tracking
and analysis
7 Verification and validation
8 Reliability improvements
The Maturity Index is part of the standard IEEE1624 (p. 19-22). The format has been adapted.



Low impact
High impact
ID Factor 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5
1 Delay of product launch date (compared to original plan)
2 Delay of milestones (compared to original plan)
3 Late-stage design changes (e.g. design changes occurring after design verification)
4 High customer complaint rate
5 Long development lead time
6 High scrap rate
7 High In-market failure rate (failures happening during use of product)
8 High variation in functional performance (e.g. batch-to-batch variation or variation over time)
9 Often and/or long downtimes of product (e.g. due to service or failures)
10 Low reliability of products/components from sub-suppliers
11 High demands for production tolerances (i.e. tight tolerances)
12 High number/duration of service visits
13 High number of R&D resources used after design verification
