6 Essential Reliability Engineering Formulas
Speaker: Fred Schenkelberg
Dick Moss, retired HP Corporate Quality and Reliability Manager, once mentioned there are really only five equations necessary to be a good reliability engineer. He quickly listed four equations and with a smile said the fifth one is the one you need to solve the current problem.
Dick understood that we need a wide range of formulas and equations to do our job. We need to fully understand a range of concepts as well. I do not know if there are just five essential formulas yet there are six essential concepts that we much understand.
Let’s discuss a few formulas, understand the idea or concept they represent, and how to best use (or not use) the formula. Using a particular formula requires understanding the purpose, limitations, and assumptions involved. It also requires the knowledge that you are using the right formula.
