New Ways to Break Things
Join Dianna and Fred as they discuss up-and-coming, new technologies and what that means for the reliability profession.
- Has the pace of innovation exceeded our interest? Where has our sense of wonder gone?
- Reliability Engineering is an important part of innovation.
- fusion reaction, printing, rockets, tin pest, particle accelerators, and atomic-level physical structures
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.
There are more engineers today than any other time in history, inventing things daily. The pace of innovation is speeding up. Most people can’t keep up with all of it, and it’s difficult to understand its effects.
From a Reliability Engineering perspective, new technology means new ways that things fail. The pace of things failing quadruples the pace of innovation. Plus, these failures are application specific. This means job security in the field of reliability!
Reliability Engineering is an important part of innovation. The more effective we are at finding failures and understanding how these new technologies may fail, the better the inventions will be.
We can explore these new innovations with wonder: How does this new thing NOT work? What are all the new ways things could fail?
Fred and Dianna suggest filling a news feed with these technological advances and subscribing to news releases from sources you’re interested in. They started the conversation talking about the fusion reaction news that came from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory: www.llnt.gov/news.
