Speaker: Fred Schenkelberg

Let’s discuss a few ways you can and should respond to requests for MTBF? How to ask vendors, or anyone, for reliability information by not asking for nor accepting MTBF. Plus, let’s brainstorm and outline a few steps each of us can do tomorrow, and every day, in order to minimize the misuse of MTBF and related measures.
