Reliability Trends with Fred Schenkelberg
“We’re not invited on Oprah to talk about Maintenance Management … Podcasts allow us to get insights from our peers.”
In this episode, James once again interviews Fred Schenkelberg. Fred is the reliability expert at FMS Reliability, reliability engineering and management consulting firm he founded in 2004. Fred talks with us today about digital content and its role in the Reliability community.
We start by discussing the traffic levels on various topic posts and how the basics are still what attracts the most views and searches. Articles like Four Effective Risk Mitigation Strategies are getting roughly 4,500 views a month.
Something ruminated on is the idea that these basics articles are still so popular. That higher-education is not preparing people for their fields -and while math and science are necessary to get the job done correctly, many of the relevant day-to-day skill sets and knowledge used in these industries are learned in practice and on the job.
In this episode we covered:
- The Web Content Side of Reliability
- The Benefits of Podcasts to Niche industries
- Accendo and the creation of content ‘Toolboxes’
