German term or phrase: Seriensicherheit
Source text as follows:

"... für eine Seriensicherheit müssen die Kräfte mit Faktor [...] reduziert werden."

Is the series here series production? I assume so, but thought it best to verify as this term appears rarely used.

I doubt "safety" is accurate – what would you suggest? I imagine that the idea is "in order to ensure constant values during series production, reduce the values specified by 0.8", i.e. the idea is to ensure that the products stay within tolerance.

series production robustness

I think you are correct here.

I have found parallel German and English texts with this term which suggest "robustness" for the -sicherheit - see below.

Example sentence(s):
  • Zur Zeit sind wir noch dabei, alle Prozessschritte in der gesamten Fertigungskette, ... gemeinsam mit dem Kunden akribisch auf Seriensicherheit zu durchleuchten
  • Presently we are busily inspecting all stages of the entire production chain meticulously with the customer in terms of series-production robustness ...

Series production yield

The goal is to keep the yield high (yield = % of products within specs)
