Parsons Research Engineering, Inc. asks the key question; why should any product fail at any point in the process or during its intended lifetime? If all of the key materials, process parameters, and usage requirements are met then the product should last its intended lifetime. When products fail it indicates a weakness in the design or manufacturing process. Correcting these weaknesses improves not only the product itself but also other products produced by the same process and the economic bottom line. Less product failures and production fallout means more satisfied customers, more efficient maufacturing, and greater profit.
We perform product failure analysis for a wide range of industries and products including consumer, automotive, military, industrial, and medical. At PRE we use internal laboratory equipment and external high-technology analysis labs for specialized investigations. We are experts in determining which specialized analysis methods are needed; scanning electron microscopy, gas chromatography, X-ray, material and fracture analysis, infrared microscopy and integrated circuit deprocessing. Our extensive experience wth high volume manufacturing makes us knowledgeable in the area of failure analysis for yield improvement.
We can lead a coordinated failure analysis effort with your product or service team that addresses the concerns of design and manufacturing and integrates the use of specialized analysis labs to provide a complete failure resolution.
