The WARP database and website were developed by the Reliability Information Analysis Center (RIAC) under a project sponsored by the Defense Technical Information Center Information Analysis Center Program Office (DTIC-I)
The objective of the WARP database and website is to collect, analyze and verify the existence and characteristics of physics-of-failure (PoF) models for electronic, electromechanical and mechanical components to provide a centralized web-based repository within RIAC that is accessible to researchers and engineers for their understanding of:
(1) what specific PoF Failure Mechanism Models should be used to assess the reliability of specific component types (representing both internal device and packaging-related failure mechanisms)
(2) what specific PoF Failure Mechanism Models currently exist in the WARP repository to accomplish the goal in bullet 1
(3) what specific PoF Failure Mechanism Models need to be developed (gap analysis) or added to the WARP repository to accomplish the goal in bullet 1
(4) what specific physical Data/Information is needed to exercise each identified PoF Failure Mechanism Model in the WARP repository based on bullet 2
The WARP website encourages users to register as Members (ability to participate in the WARP Forum) or Contributors (ability to submit models or model validation data for consideration).
