Robust Design (RD) Methodology is discussed for hardware development. We will compare with reliability engineering (RE) tools and practices, and highlight differences and similarities. We will present proximity to ideal function for robust design and compare to physics of failure and other reliability modeling and prediction approaches. We will show measurement selection to strongly differentiates RD and reliability engineering methods. We will show how to get the most from each methodology and show pitfalls for each set of practices. This webinar will be a lead in to Lou’s symposium classes DOE and DFSS.

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!"
