Pat O'Connor

The main drivers of Pat's teaching on engineering management, including quality, reliability and safety, are: 1) Dilbert is far wiser than most management "gurus". He is also experienced; 2) Quality, reliability and safety are driven by good management and good engineering. Math and stats play a very minor part; and 3) Standards like ISO9000 and others for reliability and safety are misleading and dangerous. Ops A La Carte is a local instructor for Pat's Test Engineering course and we also bring in Pat as an expert speaker for Reliability Workshops.
