Reliability Projects

The Reliability Sector Consortium oversees five initiatives:

  1. MNT End-Users
  2. MNT Technology Developers
  3. Standards and Guidelines
  4. Database and Technology Portal
  5. Space Radiation Effects on MEMS

Strategic Work Plan


Develop a risk assessment methodology to assess the capability of MNT for aerospace applications as far as reliability is concerned. Identify, quantify, and specify the parameters of this methodology.

Methodology of Strategic Work Plan

From the objective, one must start with the top-down approach and the associated needs (see the following table). The requirements of aerospace applications are obviously taken into account.

Part I: Top-down approach - gaps

Objective Sub-topics Needs Examples Examples of solution providers Action needed from CANEUS GAPS
Ensure capability & reliability Reliability
Demonstrate all 3
Define the elements necessary for the demonstration
DO-254-like (and light)   Apply DO-254-like (and light) on 2 / 3 examples to define the elements necessary for the demonstration
Address Space radiation effects   Identify sources of information
Gather first results
Identify gaps in information

Once a demonstration (through e.g., DO254-like and –light method) is successful, one may implement MNT on aerospace applications. It is hence important to have access to the elements / parameters which are needed for the demonstration. This will define another list of needs, which may be obtained from a Bottom-up approach (see the following table).

These needs are already taken in charge by networks, companies, technology providers, and universities … All these actors do cover some of them partly, or fully. CANEUS will not do the work again. Rather, CANEUS will play the role of:

  1. Listing what is needed for demonstration,
  2. Telling whether these parameters are available, where (supplier),
  3. And, possibly, explain how to rate suppliers (labelling),
  4. Or suggest relevant standards (after analysis),
  5. Identify the gaps in the necessary proofs or resources,
  6. Prioritize the gaps,
  7. Suggest actions (standards, common programmes …).

Part II: Bottom-up approach - gaps

Objective Sub-topics Needs Examples Examples of solution providers Action needed from CANEUS GAPS
Predict reliability Reliability assessment tools TTF assessment tools PoF models LAAS, QinetiQ, Epsilon Matrix “who knows what”
How to label suppliers
Relevant standards (existing or to be created)
Identification of gaps
Suggest actions
l assessment tools Statistics IMS
Similarity analysis Test return data base
Reliability engineering (assessment + DfR) Technology provider data FIDES Eurelnet, Euceman, EuMiRel
Knowledge database REMM
Reliability management Standards IEEE1312, IEEE1413, IEC62308
Assess & Increase reliability Production stability Control variation Test structures for technology providers LIRMM, NIST, LNE
Measure variation Metrology Süss/Polytec/FhG IZM/Delta
Failure analysis Novamems
Screening methodology Apply and justify accelerated tests on numerous samples Test procedures
Test standards
Serma, LNE, Bureau Veritas
Virtual qualification based on PoF models & parameter characterization PoF models for each failure mechanism
Material parameter database
Product parameter (and variation) database
Assess reliability real-time & on-board – assess real life environment TSMD, HUMS Midisppi MEMUNITY
Field return data base From qualification, production & tests


This plan has an advantage: one may begin to work without spending many resources. This means that results and deliverables are achievable, progress is possible and outputs may be put forward in front of senior executives. This should prove essential to go further.

Outputs from previous actions

This section is a reminder of questions and issues that were previously raised during the first workshops on MNT reliability. The section intends to show how the Strategic Work Plan answers these points.

  1. How to bring together existing (and various) networks, labs, university dealing with MEMS reliability (August 2006)?

    Suggested answer today: CANEUS will not bring them together – instead, CANEUS will identify them, their competences and knowledge and create a matrix of “who knows what”. The “What” will be the gaps identified towards the demonstration of the capability of MNT to fly (in terms of reliability)

  2. End user requirements: low volume, high reliability, specific products

    End-user requirements are taken into account into activity two

  3. Proposed pilot project: fully integrated MNT reliability framework: based on an existing cluster, a future company performing reliability and testing services for MNT + world wide database exchange layout

    The idea of clustering everything together (from characterization to material databases, from Academic teams to NoE, from design software to MNT testing companies and failure analysis labs) may have been too ambitious (Toulouse 2006, Milan 2007)

  4. How to disseminate EU funded data bases (from NoE, from EU project) to third part countries?

    In the “who knows what” matrix, reliable supplier of knowledge will be identified. It will then be the responsibility of each end-user to take in charge the knowledge transfer (paying fees, exchange information, licensing …). It is not part of CANEUS business. CANEUS may label “knowledge suppliers” to help end-users, no more.

  5. How to share without clear identified funding?

    This first set of activities does not imply any IP, or NDA activity. The funding is the companies’ own funding and should be reasonably moderate. Further, the outputs are intended to show the management that it is possible to get results, so that we may go further with more developed action plans.
