I want to tell you that I have gone through many webinars on Accendo Reliability and found them very useful. I am new to Reliability Engineering and very keen to learn it and apply it in my organization. — Ankur Sharma

This is the third in our webinar series ‘Reliability Analysis … now what?’ The first webinar showed what it actually means to turn reliability data into something that a decision maker can use. Not a chart. Not a graph. Not a ‘p’ value. Not anything else that you find in a textbook but isn’t useful. Last month’s webinar talked about how the best way to do this is to use computers … but in an easy way! And we talked about how we create a ‘posse’ of possible ‘ways’ we can explain the data we see. And this webinar is about how we use this thing called Markov Chain Monte Carlo Simulation (MCMC) to create this ‘posse.’ And the ‘posse’ isn’t random … it is based on the ‘likelihood’ of each on being the correct one. Which is how MCMC works.
You can’t really do this stuff without knowing the basics. So in this webinar, we show you the underlying mechanics of MCMC. And again – relax! We aren’t using equations – just pictures!

Risk is uncertainty. Will this work? How will this item fail? Is it safe? Risk is not limited to product failure as it includes brand topics such as market acceptance, regulatory approval, supply chain stability, international conflicts, and more. Reliability engineering tends to focus on product failure to perform as expected and we have to fit into the large context of risks facing any product or system.
Let’s talk about risk, risk management, and our role in identifying and mitigating risks. Plus, let’s explore how reliability engineering tools fit into the larger risk management processes many organizations have in place.
There are a few ways to deal with risk. From ignoring potential risks until forced into action, to anticipating risks and preparing responses, just in case. We will do a bit of both, as we will not anticipate all potential risks, there are still surprises out there. Yet, the better we are with identifying risks, understanding our roles and responsibilities, we can eliminate or mitigate risks well.
What do you consider our role is in risk analysis? Add your thoughts or questions when registering.

This is the fourth in our webinar series ‘Reliability Analysis … now what?’ We have examined how to turn a bunch of data points (like the different failure points of devices under test) into something simple, useful, and sometimes beautiful! This is something that commercial software can’t do. We have looked at how we can create this thing called the ‘likelihood’ that covers the probability of different ‘ways’ our failures can be explained. And we essentially create a ‘posse’ of these different ‘ways’ we can describe our data based on how likely they are. And that is what this thing called Markov Chain – Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation can do for us. In the last webinar, we looked at what MCMC is. And now it is time for us to ask our computers to do the heavy work
So in this webinar, we show you how to get your computer to help you give useful reliability information to your boss, manager, director, or whoever it will be that thinks you are a star for removing all the ‘black magic’ of reliability!
