He also wrote several special programs for statistical research such as MonteCarloSMITH™ and BiWeibullSMITH™ software packages. He has 16 years experience as Program Engineer for Garrett AiResearch aerospace systems and over 30 years experience in developing Weibull Engineering tools.
He supervised development and production engineering of aircraft flight control projects and maneuvering fly-by-wire actuation systems.
He co-patented a multi-fuseable shaft (high-performance drive-train device) and is a member of several engineering societies. A lecturer in statistical modeling, he presents Dr. Bob Abernethy’s Weibull Workshop including the Fulton Factor he developed for use in set comparison.
He also originated the concept of “assurance” using equivalent reliability and confidence.
In this episode, David discusses:
