Join us for a webinar Wednesday August 24, 8:30 am to 10:30 am PDT (California)
The discipline of reliability engineering, which developed rapidly after the Second World War, has not kept pace with modern technology. Many reliability engineering activities practiced today are outdated, misleading, or even fundamentally flawed. This may result in the execution of activities which cannot contribute to the primary objective of reliability engineering, which is the prevention of failure. Furthermore, other useful activities are often omitted from product development processes, which may increase the risk of releasing products and systems with inferior reliability.
This 2-hour webinar, which costs $200, starts with a concise discussion on the history, objectives and practice of reliability engineering, and continues to identify and discuss several mistakes frequently made by engineers. The presentation is based on the chapter titled “Reliability and stupidity: mistakes in reliability engineering and how to avoid them” in Reliability Characterisation of Electrical and Electronic Systems (Woodhead Publishing, 2015).
He has presented numerous award-winning technical papers at international symposia, and is author of “Reliability and stupidity: mistakes in reliability engineering and how to avoid them” in Reliability Characterisation of Electrical and Electronic Systems. Albertyn Barnard received the degrees M.Eng. (Electronics) and M.Eng. (Engineering Management) from the University of Pretoria, South Africa. He has provided consulting services in systems and reliability engineering to the defence, nuclear, aerospace, utilities and commercial industries since 1982. He provides training in reliability engineering to industry and at post-graduate level at the University of Pretoria.
Cost: $200 – +5 attendees from one company at $180 per person
