  • Title: Improving reliability of product subjected to random vibration during transportation and its case study
  • Abstract: To enhance the reliability of newly designed product like refrigerator subjected to random vibrations in transportation, new reliability methodology, including load analysis and parametric Accelerated Life Testing (ALT), was presented. As a case study, refrigerator subjected to random vibration during transportation is studied to improve reliability. In first parametric ALT we found to be the damage of the compressor rubber mounts. As a result, the connecting tubes between the compressor and condenser were fractured. The shape of failures in 1st ALT and the failed samples in field are the same. The failures of connecting tube were caused by the design flaws of the compressor rubber mount. To correct these problems, the rubber mounts were redesigned to protect the refrigerator from random vibration. And the connecting tube also was reshaped. The refrigerators with B1 life were targeted to have no failure in transportation. We knew that parametric ALTs were effective in finding the missing design parameters of mechanical systems like refrigerators in transportation.
