Essential Reliability Engineering Concepts
podcast episode with speaker Fred Schenkelberg
Everything will eventually fail. I like to say that keeps us in business as reliability engineers. The trick is knowing what will fail and when. There are many potential causes for a product or system to fail. Design flaws, supplied component latent defects, assembly damage, and unexpected applied stresses exist.
The key to take away from this concept is we can learn when studying failures. We can work to prevent or delay specific types of failures. By learning about failures, we learn how to create reliable products.
Let’s discuss the concept of failures and a few other concepts universal to reliability engineering. Understanding the foundational concepts for our work can only assist you in your work.
