20211012E A ElsayedPoster


The pace of the developments of new materials, advances in manufacturing processes and sensors technology have resulted in the introduction of new products with unique designs and configurations. The human health care systems and the need for closer integration of engineering into the medical filed have been greatly affected by such developments. New medical devices, human body parts replacements with “artificial” ones, their manufacturing, quality and reliability pose challenging research issues. This presentation addresses key challenges in reliability modeling, estimation, prediction and testing approaches for such products and highlights key challenges that require investigation by the reliability engineering community.
