Reliability Training

The most complete library of reliability information anywhere in the world

In January, we launched our site Reliapedia. Since then we have added over 50 GBytes of data, videos, and PDF files to the site and will continue to do so. The purpose of this site is not only to be the best source of reliability information, but also the most current.

This is the most comprehensive source of reliability information in any one place. Over 200 technical articles and presentations as well as over 100 hours of video content, including 25 one hour webinars, our entire CRE and CQE course webinars, and our most popular seminars. This site is perfect for those that want to learn at their own pace. And rolled into this new site is the ability to ask us questions and even sign up for weekly/monthly mentoring if you need a little guidance. And we are committed to continue to update the site. We are working on interactive formulas, a 40-hour seminar series, and more.

Non-members can browse through the site and see the abstract for each article, webinar, and seminar, and the first page in each chapter of Mike’s book. Members get access to the entire site.

We have set up 3 different levels for the site:

Level I (Silver) Members can view all content and watch all videos.

Level II (Gold) Members get all of the privileges of Level I Members plus you can email us a question to askops@opsalacarte.com and we respond within 24 hours. We will utilize our engineering pool of over 60 consultants as well as our over 100 partners to provide you a complete and professional response.

Level III (Platinum) Members get all of the privileges of Level II Members plus we will assign you a mentor and set up a weekly call with you to answer any questions you may have. Customers who utilize this service find it helpful to write down their questions throughout the week and then bring them all to the weekly meeting to maximize each mentoring session.

Click here to REGISTER

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.
