A Couple Approaches to Managing Lessons Learned
Kirk and Fred discussing the difficulty in getting to root cause of a component failures. In many cases a component failure is not due to a intrinsic failure mechanism in the component, but instead is due to a circuit application issue such as rapid voltage spikes or transients. They also discuss the issues with Li-ion battery failures in Samsung and Boeing leading to costly recalls and failures.
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss failures and in particular the problems with Li-ion batteries that caused a recent recall of the newest Samsung smartphone.
- Factors in charging and the life of Li-ion batteries
- The difficulty of accelerating chemically based failure mechanisms that are used in Li-ion batteries
- Failures due to customers using products in a harsh or abusive environments may be difficult to anticipate and address.
