Essential Reliability Engineering Concepts
Speaker: Fred Schenkelberg
Everything will eventually fail. I like to say that keeps us in business as reliability engineers. The trick is knowing what will fail and when. There are many potential causes for a product or system to fail. There are design flaws, supplied component latent defects, assembly damage, and unexpected applied stresses.
The key to take-away from this concept is we can learn when studying failures. We can work to prevent or delay specific types of failures. By learning about failures, we learn how to create reliable products.
Let’s discuss the concept of failures along with a few other concepts universal to reliability engineering. Understanding the foundational concepts for our work can only assist you in your work.

Is there a PDF version of slides available?
Fred Schenkelberg says
sorry, I do not have a pdf copy available – I used Adobe Captivate to create the material and the PDF created require flash – thus really not all that useful, and I find that having flash on my system the slides rarely work at all. Hence, switching to another platform to create the material and going forward able to share pdf copies of the slides.
