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

Any product is a collection of materials that have been engineered, shaped, and modified to become components and joints (e.g. weld and braze joints). The materials can degrade due to exposure to use conditions – steel screws corrode when exposed to water, some plastics become brittle when exposed to sunlight, and coatings on surfaces can wear away.
Components and joints will stop functioning as required if their materials degrade too much. This is a problem if it leads to reduction or loss of product performance before the end of a product’s expected life.
Identifying the conditions to which materials are exposed and selecting materials that can withstand the exposure is a critical part of designing products that have good reliability.
During this webinar, I will discuss identification of the conditions that can cause materials to degrade.
• Stressors that act on components and joints
• Material degradation mechanisms
• Five sources of stressors
• Determining the magnitude of stressors

We have plenty of options to learn reliability engineering—books, magazines, newsletters, conferences, seminars, etc. We have options. Depending on what you want to know, some options are better than others. Likewise, some options are better than others, depending on what you want to share.
Formal learning in school is just the beginning of our education. To thrive in your career, you really should continue to learn. Given all the options available, how does one choose which to focus on?
Let’s explore the range of options available, pros and cons, and a simple strategy to make professional development a routine part of your ongoing education.

Sounds simple … right? We simply test faster! Great! But what does this get us? Many organizations are faced with a dilemma when it comes to testing to MEASURE reliability. If we test an amazing new product in ‘at use’ conditions, it might take many years before it will fail. This is time we simply don’t have when it comes to product development. So how do we test faster? One of the more obvious answers is to increase the stress. Turn the temperature up. Increase the vibration. Use more voltage. But how do we get this right? How can we know that (for example) one week of accelerated testing is equivalent to 10 years of actual use? This webinar will help introduce you to the idea of Accelerated Life Testing or ALT to help you and your organization make reliability testing a reality.
