Today’s consumer electronics market becomes highly competitive because of the increase on number of manufacturers and high consumer expectations. These competition causes dramatic cost decreasing. Each cost down work could cause very crucial reliability problems if it is not managed well. Also, consumers’ expectations about reliability of the products are increased. Reliable, trouble-free and robust products satisfy customer needs for a long time. These quality improvements increase sales, reduce rework and services costs, and obtain good brand reputation. However, the manufacturing costs will be increased if it is wanted to produce highly
