Reliability and Safety
podcast episode with speaker Fred Schenkelberg
Is a reliable product safer? Are the safety elements of a product or system independent from its reliability performance? These and other questions speak to the complex relationship between reliability and safety.
Let’s explore the overlap and differences between a safe and a reliable product or system. Concepts like fail-safe and severity indicate part of the overlap. If a safety feature of a system fails, is that a safety or a reliability problem?
It appears I have plenty of questions related to the safety and reliability relationship, yet suspect that if the goal is to meet customer and business objectives, then creating a safe and reliable system is a complementary endeavor.
