Overview of the Program Content:
The Program will consist of the following:
  • First, Mike will introduce the participants to Reliability Engineering using a slide presentation.  He will provide an overview of the following:
    • What a Reliability Engineer does;
    • What the ASQ CRE Certification and its Body of Knowledge (BoK) entail;
    • The Reliability and Risk Division (RRD), a community of 2,611 members (as of October 2021);
    • The training that RRD provides to Reliability Engineers;
    • The place of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) in Reliability Engineering in general and in the Technical Data Packages specifically; and
    • His own interest in the topic.
  • Also, Mike will introduce the presentation “Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T)” given by Tony Bryce, an instructor at Tec-Ease Inc., to the RRD Division in March 2020 that Mike attended at that time.
  • Then, we will watch the recording of Tony Bryce’s GD&T presentation.  This presentation includes:
    • What is Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T);
    • How GD&T helps Design, Production, Inspection, and the Enterprise;
    • How Drawing Previews are conducted;
    • Where the technology is headed; and
    • What Tec-Ease brings to the table.
  • Finally, Mike will do the following:
    • Summarize the concepts we have learned;
    • Answer the audience’s questions about those concepts, the ASQ CRE Certification, the RRD Division, and his own Reliability Engineering experience.

The Certified Reliability Engineer (CRE) Certification is one of ASQ Certifications.  The ASQ Section 0511 conducted a Round Table Discussion on the topic of ASQ Certifications on 9 June 2021 (where Mike participated) and produced a Report on that topic.  You are welcome to review this Report as an additional reference here:
