  • Influencing Project Genetics – Reliability Before Design
  • By Les Warrington & Mike Silverman, Ops A La Carte
    • Background & evolution of reliability development strategies
    • Benefits of bringing the influence of reliability forward
    • Risk, Reliability impact and ROI (R3) Estimator as a key tool in early project influence.

  • Using Design for Reliability (DfR) to Reduce Product Life Cycle Costs
  • Mike Silverman, Managing Partner Ops A La Carte
    • Goal: quantitavtively define the reliability requirements for a product as well as the end-user environmental/usage conditions.
    • Customer expectations and how to translate them into engineering metrics (e.g., survive 15 years life).
    • Identify technology limitations (e.g., battery, optics, specific components, etc.) and the relevant validation strategies.
