RAS (Reliability, Availability and Serviceability)

Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) refer to a product's dependability, availability of optional features, and ease of repair and diagnosis. Product manufacturers and users must consider these three qualities when making, purchasing, or using a product and its components. RAS is important because its three attributes determine whether a product is of high quality, offers optional features, and can be repaired or diagnosed easily.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About RAS (Reliability, Availability and Serviceability)

Small companies that make products can apply RAS principles when designing, manufacturing, and deploying those products. As a result, companies can provide better-quality, accessible, and serviceable products that meet consumer needs and generate a significant return. Products with RAS, for example, might have features that improve data integrity and operate for long periods without malfunctioning.
