Reliability as a Process
podcast episode with speaker Fred Schenkelberg
We do not “do reliability”. “Reliability” doesn’t just happen to a product – well, it does with or without our intervention. To achieve the stated reliability objectives for a new product or production line, we can trust to luck or sort out what needs to happen to realize the objectives.
Carl and I have found that there isn’t a set of methods that we always use or recommend. There is no one-size-fits-all plan. We have found there exists a set of steps that we tend to follow as a guide. A framework for thinking through what needs to happen that improves the outcomes. Steps that add value.
Let’s discuss the process of achieving reliability objectives. This may be a change in approach for some of you, for others, a chance to enhance what you already do. The idea is to explore in detail why we think achieving reliability objectives is best done using a process approach.
