This is part of our monthly FREE Webinar series
Tribology is the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion. In this seminar, we will introduce the basics of Tribology, their impact on reliability and do so from the perspective of machine applications. Lubrication, film thickness, loads and Hertzian contact types effect the reliability of a design. Weibull is frequently used to model wear characteristics, but is this always the best distribution for characterizing the reliability of machine elements? All of these areas will be explored.
March 6-8, 2012, Orlando, Florida
Ops A La Carte’s Fred Schenkelberg will be presenting a workshop on "Five Ways To Reduce Warranty Costs".
Once a quarter, we will hold a topical event in the area of product realization. The next event is on Feb 16 entitled "New Product Introduction – Launching Success!"
Be Analytic in association with Ops A La Carte, AeSI Alumni Association and the Aeronautical Society of India presents “Workshop on Design for Reliability”.
January 30 – 31, 2012 in Bangalore
February 3 – 4, 2012 in Pune
In this seminar we will teach you the proper techniques to achieving Design for Reliability (DfR). We will take you through the four key phases of the product life cycle and how to integrate reliability within each phase.
Step 1: Concept Phase
Step 2: Design Phase
Step 3: Prototype Phase
Step 4: Manufacturing Phase
Reliability is no longer a separate activity performed by a distinct group within the organization. Product reliability goals, concerns and activities are integrated into nearly every function and process of an organization.. Each organization must factor reliability into every decision in order to ensure production of a successful product. The old Test-Analyze-and-Fix philosophies no longer have a place in today’s design process due to continuous cost reduction pressures and reduced design cycles.
