“It’s said that defense wins championships. But offense often drives television ratings and merchandise sales.” (JeneBramel, NY Times NFL Blog)

In product development, meeting or exceeding requirements drives the excitement of readiness. But is that enough to face the threats of: supply quality, use conditions and environmental variations; and a multitude of factors and its interactions?
This seminar presents a systemic risk-based approach to facilitate test planning and overall control (or defense) strategy against high-risk escapes. Hear about case studies that wove together FMEA, requirements, and design controls to achieve this.

Don’t miss this opportunity for learning and a LIVE demonstration! FREE!!!!

Reliability of Glass and Coatings

Invited Speaker: Stuart Douglas, Google [X], Mountain View, CA
Time: Check in and food at 6:00PM – 6:30 PM
Presentation from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Location: Agilent Technologies, Aristotle Room in Main Lobby, 5301 Stevens Creek Blvd, Santa Clara, CA, 95051
Admission: Open to all IEEE members and non-members for FREE!

Abstract: For consumer electronics companies building tablets, phones, and laptops, glass fracture is often a cause for customer returns, replacements, or dissatisfaction. This presentation will review basic fracture mechanics, types of glass used in consumer electronics, and ways to quantify the material reliability. A methodology to use material data to quantify reliability at the system level will be provided. In addition, a brief overview of typical glass coatings and ways to test their reliability will be presented.
