2016 Status of Reliability Education
Education options have exploded.
For the past 75 years, we read books, gone back to campus, attended workshops, traveled to conferences, and participated in evening meetings. Today we have more options from more sources for our professional development.
Reliability is an engineering discipline that encompasses a broad array of tools and techniques, useful for answering durability and robustness type questions.
Product development teams often rely on reliability engineering professionals to guide, advise and manage reliability programs.
Reliability is a facet in nearly every function of an organization.
This implies the knowledge and skills required for the reliability engineer are comprehensive. The knowledge breadth may span aspects of material science to design constraints to warranty reverse logistics.
How do engineers become reliability professionals? What are the knowledge transfer options available to the reliability profession? How do we get started and maintain our knowledge?
In this webinar, let’s discuss what’s available, a couple of common paths taken to become a reliability professional, and highlight the strengths and a few weaknesses concerning reliability education.
This is my view of the state of reliability education.
