Practical Reliability Engineering for Industry by Dr. Alec Feinberg

Join us for a four half-day webinar on April 2-3 and 9-10 8:30 am- 12:00 pm PDT each day (California time) Cost $850 per person, Group discounts available for 5 or more from same company!  You must participate in all 4 days.

Register here and pass this on to your colleagues!   

This is an intense, practical course for industry focusing on applying reliability in real world situations. It uses a stage gate approach to reliability as product transition from the Idea Phase, Evaluate, Develop, Transition and lastly to the Production Stage. This is a 14 hour webinar, which costs $850, (broken down into 4 half days) and includes course material and reliability software (30-day trial) to accelerate learning. The material provides depth and exposure to the industry’s reliability science.

We start with basic methods in reliability & quality, providing full explanation of how to grow reliability in a commercial environment and translate that into ROI dollars. Reliability growth starts in the Design Idea phase using tools like FMEA, reliability predictions, and reverse engineering. Here we provide a formal method for providing a detailed reliability plan for the product. We describe how to develop the plan with management and engineers so that everyone is involved and sample sizes and cost are obtained up front. We move into Evaluation stage gate demonstrating and analyzing reliability in the testing phase with prototypes. We describe how to organize an effective DART (Design Assessment Reliability Testing) plan that includes HALT. We detail the method of test design by failure modes. As the product matures and the design becomes frozen, we move into the Development stage gate where we often do Design Maturity Testing demonstrating reliability with qualification testing. We go over the common specification and describe how to design test with and without specifications. Reliability statistical analysis is key and is accessible to the student through our professional DfRSoft software tool. Each student has the software to follow along during the course to help problem solving quickly. This jump starts ones capability. We then move into the Transition stage gate. Here we are concerned with production screening such as HASS. This jump starts ones capability. We then move into the Transition stage gate. Here we are concerned with production screening such as HASS.  Finally we move into production monitoring where we monitor reliability with a sampling strategy.
