Warranty returns are a great place to start for setting targets for new products. But how do you translate that to specific numbers to design to? If you know the strength of a product and the return rate, you can develop stress profiles. If you have multiple similar products, your estimates can be even better. From the profiles, targets can be developed for future products to meet, and use them to calculate the expected return rates. You can even use these profiles to estimate the impact of design changes to warranty returns.

Let’s say that you have some ‘reliability guys’ do some reliability analysis on reliability data … and they give you some numbers. Or a plot. Or a curve. Perhaps you are the reliability guy … and you do the analysis – and then what?
How do you use that probability plot to help you make a decision? How do you use confidence bounds, ‘p’ values, standard deviations, and so on to help you make a decision? The three most important things for reliability analysis are ‘the decision,’ ‘the decision’ and ‘the decision.’ So how do you convert reliability data analysis into useful information for that decision? … uncertainty and all? This webinar is for you!

The difficult part of creating this list of essential techniques is to avoid selecting just the most common. There is an overlap between essential and those commonly used, yet essential implies a technique is crucial. Crucial on rare yet very important situations. The idea for today’s discussion is to focus on those vital few techniques that I believe every reliability engineer must master.
The techniques I’ve settled on are not specific tools in most cases, instead they are the fields of knowledge or practice. For example, instead of suggesting Weibull analysis is essential, instead, I’m suggesting that math skills are essential. With sufficient math prowess, you can do a wide range of analysis and modeling.
Your science, engineering, and math formal training will serve you well as a reliability engineer, and that is not sufficient to be successful. Not every problem involves using a math technique, although it is common. You also need to master techniques in failure analysis and experimentation. Plus, please do not forget that we work with others, thus the essential techniques of persuasion and team building are likewise vital.
Let’s discuss this shortlist of essential techniques and consider why I suggest they are essential, plus explore others that you consider essential as well.
