The Importance of Repeatability, Reliability, Consistency and Accuracy

Brian Sullivan, Director of Sales, Technology at Valin Corporation, discusses the importance of repeatability,  reliability, consistency, and accuracy.

Keeping these four categories in mind is crucial for designing the most optimal system.

Repeatability, the system design must produce the same high quality product consistently. Systems that do not have repeatability produce scattered results.

Reliability is maintaining the level of quality over time.

Consistency is making sure every system is as consistent as possible.

Accuracy allows the system to do what it's supposed to do within a very tight bandwidth of performance characteristics.

These four principles will take you farther  than making something that is quick and easy in the long run.
