ASQ RRD Series Webinar: Introduction To Software Reliability Presentors: Drs. Lance Fiondella and Vidhyashree Nagaraju Thursday, September 12, 2024 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM https://asq.webex.com/weblink/register/re67874ad2a549c4b1a046605446d08c9 Abstract: Modern commercial and defense systems increasingly depend on software for their functionality. Unlike hardware, software does not wear out physically, as it is not directly subject to any mechanical or electrical stress throughout its lifetime. However, while hardware has enjoyed significant gains in reliability in recent decades, many systems have attributed a disproportionate number of failures to software. ...
ASQ RRD Series Webinar: Emotional Intelligence Boosts Connection And Why It Matters Thursday, August 8, 1, 2024 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (UTC-04:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) https://asq.webex.com/weblink/register/ra32c72243f961a95953d9593664f0465 Abstract: Emotional Intelligence has been a topic for many years, and this webinar will explore its advantages and impacts. Join us to discover how you can take advantage of the approach. Emotional intelligence (EI) is often written off as a nice-to-have soft skill. But the reality is that EI — and the genuine connections it helps establish — can be the difference-maker for mission critical must-haves ...

ASQ RRD Series Webinar: Stochastic Modelling Presenter: Jorge Luis Romeu, PhD Thursday, June 13, 2024 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (UTC-04:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) https://asq.webex.com/weblink/register/re8d5c5ee48376a4de25f6087feeca5f7 abstract Modeling a process or a system as a Markov Chain offers an excellent tool for its performance evaluation and for the study of different factors that can run it astray. In this talk we will present four examples of modeling Covid-19 problems as Markov Chains: (1) the trajectory of Covid-19 infected patients into an ICU, and up to their death; (2) assuming that the virus will infect a large part of the population, ...

ASQ RRD Series Webinar: Product Liability Drama: How Reliability And Statistical Methods Prevent It Thursday, May 9, 2024 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (UTC-04:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Presenter: Allise Wachs, Ph.D. https://asq.webex.com/weblink/register/r91e9f911983cd6eb52ca28825b736575 Abstract: Large manufacturing companies spend billions of dollars on warranty and product liability lawsuits annually. Warranty, product liability suits, safety recalls, and associated costs could easily be minimized with the proper use of industrial statistical and reliability methods. Many product defect cases are a result of a suboptimal design or unstable manufacturing ...

On Thursday, January 11, 2024 Tim Adams presented: ASQ RRD series webinar: Zero Failures: Calculate Reliability with No Recorded Failures Agenda This presentation for the practitioner provides methods with an illustrated Microsoft Excel tool to calculate reliability when the life-data set contains no recorded failures (zero Failures). The methods address both types of data (discrete and continuous) and both types of statistics (classical and Bayesian). The desired outcome is: Given life data with no failures and the zero-failure Excel tool, calculate reliability, interpret the result, and describe the method(s) used. The prerequisites are familiarity ...
