How to Specify Reliability to a Supplier
Kirk and Fred discuss working with suppliers to obtain the desired reliability performance. It starts with how you specify reliability. It must include sufficient detail so your supplier understands your request.
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss common problems and a couple recommended practices when communicating your reliability requirements to your supplier.
Asking for a reliable solution requires both parties discuss how and when the item is likely to fail within the product.
- The many levels of potential failure mechanisms in a motor
- How wear is a factor in mechanical systems
- What the supplier knows about failure mechanisms and the physics of failure
Enjoy an episode of Speaking of Reliability, where you can join friends as they discuss reliability topics. Join us as we discuss topics ranging from design for reliability techniques to field data analysis approaches.
