How is Reliability Engineering Changing?
Speaker: Fred Schenkelberg
The reliability engineering discipline, like all fields of endeavor, is changing. The inclusion of risk management, the shift to proactively avoiding field failures, and the increasing use of sensors and models, all make the future fascinating.
Let’s explore a brief history plus the major trends in business and industry that shape the work or reliability professionals. The work to create, assembly, and maintain a reliable system includes many activities and tasks that have given rise to the field of reliability engineering. There is a litany of tools that we and others use to identify risks, design, test, and maintain systems.
Supply chains are more complex and risky. Sensors have become affordable and more powerful. Modeling techniques have improved as well. Terms like physics of failure, prognosis health management, and risk management have become common – if not well understood.
What’s coming to reliability engineering in 2020 and beyond? Let’s explore a few trends and their implications. Let’s prepare and shape the future so we all can enjoy reliable systems and products.
