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

There are so many books on leadership, management, more leadership, reliability, quality, customer first, even more leadership, et cetera. But there remains a common refrain I hear repeatedly from reliability engineers struggling to make a difference: ‘reliability is just not relevant to my organization.’ There is a common thread to this common refrain – we only hear it from people who work in organizations that don’t have a clear understanding of ‘why’ they are doing what they do. Which in turn, means no one really knows ‘why’ reliability is important beyond a few generalisms and motherhood statements. But all too often, us reliability engineers are just as guilty in not understanding ‘why’ we are here. If you want to start thinking about how you make you and your team more relevant (and valuable) to your organization, join us for this webinar and then ask yourself – ‘why?’

The more you understand the failure mechanisms the easier it is to design an accelerated life test, (ALT). Yet, we often do not have all the information we would like to draft an ALT. So, what do we do then?
One approach is to use a suitable standard and simply follow the recipe. For example, 3 samples in a chamber at 85°C and 85% RH for 1,000 hours is a common standard-based recipe. The trouble is, what do the results of such an experiment mean? Will your device work for 15 years with a low probability of failure? It is unclear, right?
So, let’s step through an approach to setting up your ALT such that you will have a meaningful result. Starting with what you know about your failure mechanism (or should know) then step through what to measure, how often, how many samples, and an overview of the analysis. The intent of this webinar is to provide a starting point for your next ALT project.

Everyone knows why we do reliability, and reliability things like FMEAs. Customer experience. Organization reputation. Reduced warranty claims 10 years from now. But these are boring reasons that really don’t motivate me to take FMEAs seriously now. Why should I invest so much time into an activity where that benefits the ‘company’ or the ‘customer’ in the future but won’t make an immediate difference where my boss will give me a ‘gold star’ on my next performance appraisal? Right? Wrong! FMEAs yield immediate benefits. Eliminating design and production delays. Slashing costs by not having to re-design. Incorporating customer or user features that supersede those of your competitors. Having your thing pass every design review and test with flying colours. FMEAs can make you a star – and this webinar will tell you why!
