A Fifth Law of Thermodynamics Law of Negative Entropy - Living System Models (on line here)

How Aging Laws Influence Parametric and Catastrophic Reliability Distributions, Reliability and Maintainability Symposium, January 2017.  In this paper we describe how these physics of failure aging laws influence reliability distributions, not only the type of distribution, but the rate of failure as it relates to the aging rate. We illustrate how one can predict parametric failure rates based on the physics of failure aging laws when known.

Physics of Failure Laws Using Thermodynamic Degradation Science, Tutorial Paper from Reliability and Maintainability Symposium, January 2017. In this tutorial paper we describe many of the basic concepts of the book Thermodynamic Degradation Science. However, it is more focused on Chapter 4 of the book.  The tutorial is summarized in the ASQ youtube video below:

Accelerated Reliability Growth - Stage Gate Method - In this paper, an Accelerated Reliability Growth (ARG) Stage-Gate (SG) process is described that is used for product development of assemblies, hybrids, and discrete components. Note, traditionally, reliability growth science is applied at the assembly level. Here we see how it makes sense for this commercial sector.
