The first paper of this sereis deals with progress being made with the development and validation of a model for the prediction of reliability of automotive electronics modules. The data base supporting this model was derived from field warranty experience of operational automotive electronic modules. Prediction capability of the model has exceeded expectations. Initial efforts in the application of the predictive model confirm its potential for use at the design level. As data base information expands, the proficiency of the model as an accurate predictor can be expected to further improve.

The following papers of the series deal with methods utilized in the design and manufacture of electrical/electronic automotive components to enhance the reliability of in-service performance. Several techniques involving in-process test methods and evaluation criteria are discussed. These techniques are anticipated to provide helpful information to designers and to those involved in reliability assessment of automotive electronics and electrical systems.
