Selecting a Reliability Method
podcast episode with speaker Fred Schenkelberg
A key element of reliability engineering is doing the right thing at the right time. When running an experiment or test, conducting an assessment, or performing an analysis, the method we use must fit the situation. Being busy does not add value; getting meaningful results does.
Start by understanding and prioritizing the decisions that require reliability-related information. Next, consider the constraints and capabilities of the team. Then, review the many possible ways to find or generate the information. Finally, select the method to create the best possible information within the given constraints.
As reliability engineers, we generate information for the use of decision-makers. It is how we influence decisions that create value. The key to success is the correct information at the right time for the right people.
