Kirk and Fred discussing Kirk’s experience with a new pinball machine’s component failures and the manufacturer.
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss recent failures of a new pinball machine and the rapid response of the manufacturer to respond and send replacement parts.
- Details on a the first failure leading to the discovery of a second failure
- Posting to social media to help identify a broken part got the machine designer to respond quickly and made direct contact with Kirk.
- The part that failed is a design that has been produced for thousands of machines over decades and has been generally reliable, and this may be a failure as a result of manufacturing error.
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.
