5 Design Verification Test Mistakes to Avoid
A Design Verification Test (DVT) proves that the drawings, if followed correctly, will produce a product that meets the requirements. In order to avoid a myriad of issues, a DVT should be conducted before the product is released to manufacturing.
Here are the most common mistakes made in DVTing:
- No Requirements Document. If you don’t have written objective requirements, then any product will do.
- Not doing functional and performance testing at the extremes of the environmental requirements.
- Ignoring things like unit cost (GOGS) requirements and/or reliability requirements.
- Not having a good understanding of tolerance stack up and adjusting the test appropriately.
- Using the same design team to conduct the DVT.
- Not going to www.FinishLinePDS.com and downloading our tools. They are free — but don’t try to talk us down.
