About the Symposium:
Guangbin Yang Quality Symposium is an annual symposium conducted in the memory of Dr. Guangbin Yang. Walter P. Chrysler Technical Fellow Dr. Guangbin Yang (August 22, 1964 - June 12, 2013) was a premier product life cycle reliability engineering and test expert, a patient teacher, and a valued colleague and good friend to many of us in the Greater Detroit area and beyond. He was the husband of Ling Jin and father of Benjamin and Laurence.
Born in Jiexi, Guangdong, China, Guangbin graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Hangzhou Institute of Electronics Engineering, received a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, and a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from Wayne State University in 2000. Guangbin made numerous contributions to reliability modeling, test planning, and data analysis. He authored over 60 publications including book, chapter, and technical papers, including Life Cycle Reliability Engineering (2007), Heuristic Degradation Test Plans for Reliability Demonstration (2013), and Accelerated Degradation Test for Rapid Reliability Evaluation (2012). His career included positions at Yazaki, Ford Motor Company, and Chrysler, LLC.
Guangbin Yang was also a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the Chair of its Automotive Systems Committee. A Fellow of the American Society for Quality, Guangbin held editorial positions with the International Journal of Reliability, Quality, and Safety Engineering and IEEE, and was Program Chair for the International Society of Science and Applied Technologies International Conference on Reliability and Quality in Design. His recognitions include the Ford Powertrain Engineering Achievement Award, IEEE Reliability Society’s “Engineer of the Year”, and listings in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, and Who’s Who in the World.
