The short product development cycle and the increased demand of robust, safe and reliable design has made the Test Analysis And Fix (TAAF) method obsolete. Closing the feedback loop on a design from field return (FRACAS) takes years. Closing the feedback loop from testing take months. Therefore a modern design has to build in robustness, safety and reliability during the design process. The paper describes how the Load-Strength theory and other methods can be used to develop design guidance for a robust design. The influence of safety margin and loading roughness is described together with repeated loads. Real examples of design guidance for robustness are shown.
