RECOMMENDED EXPOSURE LIMIT
The probability that an item will perform its intended function for a specific interval.
A broad-based discipline for ensuring better product performance by
predicting more accurately when and under what conditions a product can fail.
Based on the results of such an analysis, engineers can improve designs, set
operating limits for equipment, and create backups in case of system failure.
Reliability programs also incorporate feedback loops for analyzing product
performance in the field and, in particular, product failures.

ROOT CAUSE (CAUSE-AND-EFFECT) ANALYSIS
A deductive approach to analyzing problems by working backwards from the
'effect' to the cause or causes. One of the so-called 'SEVEN QUALITY TOOLS,'
root-cause analysis is often facilitated using a 'FISHBONE DIAGRAM' in which all
the inputs to the process are arrayed in visual format like the bones of a fish.
