SOR 512 Learning From Any Failure
Kirk discusses the many times his home appliances failing and doing his own failure analysis and the limitations.
Join Kirk as he discusses his own experiences with unreliable appliances and possible causes.
- What limits did the designs such a kitchen blender have for possible loads (Ice, small pebbles?)
- What amount and size of broken or hard pieces of debris was a considered by designers in a automatic dishwasher
- Market acceptance of the high cost limits us from developing a robotic dishwasher that could really scrub dishes.
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.
Here is the link to the US ARMY/CALCE PAPER presented at the 2013 RAMS conference event mentioned in this podcast– “Reliability Prediction – A Continued Reliance on a Misleading Approach” . This is a government document that is in the public domain and should be distributed a read by any engineer that believes failure prediction methodology is useful or beneficial during product development.
