How can you know if you are a capable reliability engineer?
Of course, reliability engineers must be competent in the fundamentals of engineering and reliability. However, the value of application skills is very important.
In other words, reliability engineers should be balanced in the theory and application of their skills. Nothing replaces experience, but practitioners can practice “what ifs” and ensure they can react properly to the variety of challenges they anticipate encountering.
The podcast ended with a discussion about the importance of having and showing curiosity and passion on the subject.
Join Carl and Fred as they discuss which skills are most important to reliability engineers and how to measure competency.
