ReliaSoft Master Suite
was chosen as the software package to drive the connectivity between defining design and manufacturing risks, developing test plans and compiling vehicle reliability predictions. In 2018, Navistar developed a library structure to store DFMEAs from 14 different engineering systems and 100 subsystems, a formal approval process for program and master template DFMEAs, piloted with two programs, developing over 100 program DFMEAs and then formalized XFMEA
as the DFMEA tool for the organization. These program DFMEAs are now stored as templates and will be the basis for the next generation of programs, improving the design risk identification while reducing the process time.
