Sorting Field Failure Data
Join Adam and Fred as they discuss the importance of categorizing failure modes before data analysis. Error in “failure type” categorization may lead to program decisions that could do more harm than good.
- The risks of prematurely categorizing failure modes. Data analysis can become contaminated and misleading to true trends.
- The strategy to address a decreasing failure trend vs an increasing failure trend is dramatically different. One prescribes pro-active removal of field units while the other advises against it.
- Caution should also be taken with sorting of data prematurely and causing a lack of resolution in the root cause methods.
Enjoy an episode of Speaking of Reliability. Where you can join friends as they discuss reliability topics. Join us as we discuss topics ranging from design for reliability techniques, to field data analysis approaches.
