Developing Failure Codes with Bill Leahy
Failures codes help the reliability engineers to make intelligent business decisions regarding the issues with the assets. It is a formula that helps you understand how an asset fails and how can you gather the needed data to mitigate a failure? A good failure code contains a hierarchy of the problem towards a suitable solution. The best practice to devise a failure code would be to break it into a sequence of Part, Problem, and Cause. In short, failure codes help you describe and understand the problem based on the failure data, and you can trend that data to prevent those failures in the future.
In this episode, we covered:
- What are failure codes?
- Why are failure codes needed?
- How can organizations develop meaningful failure codes?
- What role does ISO 14224 play in failure data?
- And much more!
