Definition of Successful Product
From an engineering perspective, what is a successful product? In this episode I discuss what I think it is and the influence of metals engineering on product success.
I also discuss three new resources for learning about successful component design, designing for reliability, and various metallurgy and metals engineering topics that apply to product design and manufacturing.
This episode is a complement to articles and podcasts available on the Industrial Metallurgists website https://www.imetllc.com/.
Michael Pfeifer is a metallurgist and metals engineer. He works with design and manufacturing clients to help with component materials selection, manufacturing process development, supplier evaluation, failure analysis and root cause analysis.
He received a B.S. and M.S. in Metallurgical Engineering from University of Illinois and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Northwestern University. He is a Professional Engineer, licensed in Illinois.
He’s wrote a book – Materials Enabled Designs. It teaches how to select materials that optimize product performance, reliability, and cost.
