Parts Selection, Application & Control
This was the first in a series of publications from RIAC dealing with reliable application of parts. It is an “overview” document addressing topics of a general nature affecting all types of parts, thus providing designers, reliability engineers and managers with the means to assure that electrical and electronic parts are selected, applied and controlled in a manner that is the most efficient and costeffective. It identifies specific selection, procurement methods and tools for properly applying electrical and electronic parts most suitable for the unique requirements of a given DoD or commercial application.

Electronic Derating for Optimum Performance
The RIAC offers extensive line of reliability, maintainability, quality, supportability, and interoperability. The purpose of this publication is to present electronic part stress derating parameters for twenty one part types. This publication includes an introduction to part stress derating theory, part derating definitions, part application guides, and part failure mode and mechanism frequency. The derating section includes application recommendations and specific electrical and environmental derating parameters. Two levels of stress derating are described, one for office type environments and one for uncontrolled conditions such as those found in an automobile or aircraft.
