Ops A La Carte Provides Confidence in ReliabilityTM
We just launched our site Reliapedia. This is the most comprehensive source of reliability information in any one place. Over 200 technical articles and presentations as well as over 100 hours of video content, including 25 one hour webinars, our entire CRE and CQE course webinars, and our post popular seminars. This site is perfect for those that want to learn at your own pace. And rolled into this new site is the ability to ask us questions and even sign up for weekly/monthly mentoring if you need a little guidance. And we are committed to continue to update the site. We are working on interactive formulas, a 40-hour seminar series, and more.
Our Annual Reliability Symposium will be held May 6-10 and will feature 8 of our most popular classes. All will be offered via webinar:
Our next Certified Quality Engineer (CQE) Preparation Class starts April16th. This is the 8th year we have been teaching this class and we boast over a 75% pass rate with over 500 students going through our CQE class.
Last month we held our popular webinar "Accelerated Life Testing (Not HALT but ALT)". Slides and webcast can be found on our new Reliapedia site.
On March 13th we will hold our next free webinar entitled FMEA of FMEAs" where we will explore all the pitfalls in conducting an FMEA and give you helpful tips on how to make your next FMEA successful.

Here is one of my favorite quotes because it fits our company philosophy very well:
"Reliability cannot be achieved by adhering to detailed specifications. Reliability cannot be achieved by formula or by analysis. Some of these may help to some extent, but there is only one road to reliability. Build it, test it, and fix the things that go wrong. Repeat the process until the desired reliability is achieved. It is a feedback process and there is no other way."
- David Packard, 1972
