10 Reasons to Do Reliability
podcast episode with speaker Chris Jackson
Everyone ‘knows’ why we do reliability engineering … right? Customer experience. Organization reputation. Reduced warranty claims ten years from now. But these are boring reasons that really don’t motivate me to take reliability seriously now. Why should I invest so much time into an activity that benefits the ‘company’ or the ‘customer’ in the future but won’t make an immediate difference when my boss gives me a ‘gold star’ on my next performance appraisal? Besides, no one person is responsible for reliability, so any effort I invest in reliability will be ‘lost in the noise’ anyway. And, of course, reliability will increase the budget and schedule today. Right?
There is a simple trick that organizations who do ‘reliability’ well use. They understand that reliability engineering solves problems starting today. That means there are fewer crises during production (costing time and money), a focus on the VITAL FEW things that matter (not the TRIVIAL THOUSANDS that lead to over-engineering), and no 300-slide PowerPoint presentations where we need to discuss reliability ‘stuff’ every week. No more ‘build-test-fix’ treadmill. Come and listen if you want to hear the ten reasons to do reliability engineering well that reduce production timelines, save budget, eliminate the ‘overwhelm’, and otherwise motivate everyone to bake reliability into the ‘first design.’
