2- We will send you the Webex link and information by email a few days prior to the event.

In this seminar you will learn about the basics of reliability engineering and some practical examples of its applications in design and risk analysis. Specifically, we will talk about failure rate estimations such as Mean Time between Failures (MTBF) and how this number should be used. Also, we will discuss product wearout and how product life estimation can be performed.

In the world of quality and reliability, people in the industry often by mistake refer to calculations such as MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) as a measure of how long a product would last in the field. The reason for this common mistake is that reliability calculations are often complex statistics-based models producing very specific values used for very specific applications. When those specific applications are not mentioned, those values can create confusion and result in erroneous conclusions.

Reliability Engineering Applications:

Every product has inherent design weakness points and hence prone to various types of failures. Reliability engineering is the study of probability of failures and the applications of this knowledge in best design practices.

Reliability calculation is the probability that a system performs correctly during its useful life. Ideally, during product’s useful life, minimal repair is required, and the system defined performance specifications resulting in minimal warranty costs.
