Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss the progress of expectations of reliability in cars, and electronics, have become more reliable.
- Sensors, like tire pressure monitors on each tire and other monitoring systems have help prevent many catastrophic failures such as flat tires.
- Technology moves on and technological obsolescence has left behind many products that still have plenty of life left in them.
- Engineers still always have to make tradeoffs in how much we can make a product more robust and still keep it competitively priced.
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.
