Welcome to the PSMA Reliability Committee Survey!

This should only take 6-8 min to complete and we thank you in advance for your input. The survey is at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PSMA-Reliab-Comm-Survey. It is now open and will be closed by Fri, 12/8/17. NOW EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, 1/5/18! 

Do you have concerns with power supply reliability as a user, manufacturer, or OEM?  Have you ever wished there would be more industry-wide efforts to address the various issues of design, manufacturing, field use, etc.?  Well now is your chance to drive a direct impact to these kinds of initiatives so please help us help you.  Fill-out the survey and pass the link along to as many colleagues, customers, and competitors as appropriate since the more responses received, the more meaningful the Committee initiatives will be.

Historically, power supplies were frequently at the top of the list of causes of field failures of electronic systems. Component and design improvements reduced failures but that positive trend may be reversing. PSMA has formed a committee to assess this situation and identify ways to put power supply reliability back on a track of continuous improvement. Success will mean higher customer satisfaction and loyalty along with lower support costs for power supply manufacturers. The starting point for the Reliability Committee is to gather data on power supply reliability and the causes of failures, both in the factory and in the field. A simple survey will help set the priorities of the committee and establish the most appropriate next steps.

About the PSMA Reliability Committee

In alignment with the PSMA mission of bringing value and utility to members as well as the power electronics industry as a whole, the PSMA Reliability Committee aims to spearhead industry initiatives that identify and attempt to solve the pertinent industry challenges related to the reliability and performance of power supplies and associated products.  The scope of the Committee shall include anything that impacts the life and desired application of a power supply, including (but not limited to) interaction with a system and/or other power supplies.

This committee was newly formed in July 2017 and is looking for eager participants. Please contact one of the Co-Chairs or the Association Office if you'd like more information or to join.
