Summer 2009

Ops A La Carte is happy to have presented their 18th quarterly newsletter. Not to let the current economic climate stymie our efforts our 2009 strategy included expanding services in the Military and Aerospace Division.

We have included the Green Reliability/Clean Tech Division and have co-hosted a Green Reliability event.

Our new Reliability Blog was introduced this past quarter and we have had positive feedback to postings and wonderful interaction from our readers.

Our new HALT-AFR Calculator has been met with very positive feedback from it's users. This tool can calculate field reliability from HALT results.

Our 3rd annual Reliability Symposium was a big success.. We opened up this year's symposium to include webinar participants. With the economy dictating attendance at seminars, meetings and exhibitions our webinar was in high demand and saved many companies money on their travel budgets. We had participants from all over the world and as far away as China.
