  • Manufacturing AST with Telecommunication ProductsReprinted from Quality Improvement Using Environmental Stress Testing, in the AT&T Technical Journal, pp. 1023, with permission from the authors and the AT&T Technical Journal 1992.

    AT&T and other leading manufacturers have developed techniques that use environmental stress testing to enhance the quality and reliability of electronics assemblies. These techniques consist primarily of applying thermal, vibration, and voltage stresses to components or assemblies during design and manufacturing. Environmental stress testing is a tool that is used to accelerate the detection of product weaknesses. When coupled with corrective-action programs, this tool also enhances product quality and reliability. This chapter discusses applications of environmental stress testing in the electronics industry. It also reviews the results of environmental stress testing at AT&T's Little Rock Operations Center in Arkansas as applied primarily to the manufacture of circuit-card assemblies.

  • Production AST with Computers Using the Taguchi Method - Reprinted from Environmental Stress Testing Experiment Using the Taguchi Method, IEEE Transactions on Components, Packaging, and Manufacturing Technology, Part A, Vol. 18, No.1, pp. 39, with permission from the author and the IEEE, 1995.

    Manufacturing process improvements which increase productivity, decrease test process time, and improve customer satisfaction are highly desirable in today's marketplace. The application of environmental stress screening (ESS), i.e, Production AST, is a method of achieving these improvements. ESS is the application of stresses applied beyond product specification limits in order to find latent product defects. Utilizing ESS achieves increased robustness and lowers infant mortality. An experiment was performed to identify the significance or relevancy of the selected stresses for application in the printed wiring assembly (PWA) production process by using a statistically significant controlled method. The design of experiments statistical approach (analysis of variance) is applied, combined with the Taguchi two-level, seven- factor design method. This experiment concentrated on three stresses?-?temperature cycling, random vibration, and power cyling?-?and two diagnostic levels?-?a prom-based (programmable memory chip), power-on self test (POST), and a functional diagnostic test suite, contained on disk storage. This was not an optimization experiment. Once the significance to the production process is identified, future optimizing of temperature cycling, power cycling, and vibration screens will be conducted. Also, voltage margining was not included to reduce the complexity of the experiment- treatment factors and interactions. Experimental results and conclusions on the effectiveness of different stress regimens are presented in this chapter.

  • Developmental Insights into Evolving Systems: Roles of Diversity, Non-Selection, Self-Organization, Symbiosis

    A developmental view of evolving systems (ecological, social, economical, organizational) is examined to clarify 1) the role of selection processes versus collective, non-selective processes, 2) the origins of diversity and its role in system performance and robustness 3) the origin of explicit subsystem interactions (cooperation/symbiosis that enhance individual and system performance, 4) the preconditions necessary for further evolutionary development, and 5) the effect of environmental timescales with adaptation timescales. Three sequential stages of evolving systems (based on the work of Salthe) are proposed: a Immature stage dominated by highly decentralized, selective processes with chaotic local and global dynamics, a Mature stage dominated by non-selective, self-organizing processes with global robustness but locally chaotic dynamics, and a Senescent stage dominated by rigid interactions with global fragility. A simple model problem with many optimal and non-optimal solutions - an agent solution to a maze - illustrates the entire developmental history. Within the model, the agents evolve their capability from a random approach to an optimized performance by natural selection. As the agents develop improved capability, natural selection becomes rare, and an emergent collective solution is observed that is better than the performance of an average agent. As the collective, self-organizing structures are incorporated into individual capability within a stable environment, constraints arise in the agent's interactions, and the system loses diversity. The resulting Senescent system exhibits reduced randomness due to the rigid structures and ultimately becomes fragile. Depending on the degree environmental change, the Senescent system will either "die," or collapse under environmental stress to the Mature or Immature stage, or incorporate the constrain ts system-wide into a new hierarchical system. The current study adds to the literature on developmental systems by finding: Transitions between stages are dependent on the degree of sustained environmental stability and how exclusive cooperation (e.g., symbiosis) in a subsystem can originate, and how it results in a decline in diversity
