  • A Better Way to do Design Reviews

    02/08/2021

    Design reviews can sometimes be awful. And this can often occur when we focus religiously on 'meeting requirements.' We only meet requirements at the end of the design process - so what do we talk about during the 17 design reviews that happen before then? Sometimes we devolve into a courtroom where the design team leads are presumed 'guilty' of something and need to convince the judges that they have been working really, really hard. Sounds familiar? Listen to this podcast. The post SOR 675 A Better Way to do Design Reviews appeared first on Accendo Reliability.

  • Safety and Reliability

  • Make or Check Reliability

    23/07/2021

    There is a huge difference between 'making' reliability and 'checking' reliability. We can't just assume that because we rigorously 'check' reliability that this will procedurally imply that someone else will 'make' reliability. This is like driving your car using the rear vision mirror only. Trying to guide an engineering team on what you 'do want' is not simply telling them what you 'don't want' ... once they fail to meet (ambiguous) guidance. The post SOR 672 Make or Check Reliability appeared first on Accendo Reliability.

  • Wright's Law and Reliability

    12/07/2021

    Wright’s Law and Reliability Abstract Chris and Fred discuss this thing called ‘Wright’s Law’ which is a really fascinating way of describing how things improve as we create more of them. And why is this relevant for reliability engineering? Does ‘reliability growth’ ring a bell? Key Points Join Chris and Fred as they discuss Wright’s […] The post SOR 669 Wright’s Law and Reliability appeared first on Accendo Reliability.

  • Maintenance Culture Matters

    09/07/2021

    Maintenance Culture Matters Abstract Chris and Fred discuss how important maintenance culture is – especially when it comes to safety-critical systems. Like ‘cable cars’ used to transport people up ski slopes. But unfortunately (like the recent accident that occurred in Italy that resulted in 14 deaths) toxic maintenance culture can lead to disastrous consequences. And […] The post SOR 668 Maintenance Culture Matters appeared first on Accendo Reliability.

  • Interpreting Distribution Parameters

    05/07/2021

    We are often interested in studying random phenomena ... like failure. And we often like using probability distributions to help us do this study. And these distributions have parameters that define the nature of that probability distribution. So what doe these parameters mean? The post SOR 667 Interpreting Distribution Parameters appeared first on Accendo Reliability.

  • Giving and Receiving Feedback

    02/07/2021

  • Keeping up with Reliability Tools

    28/06/2021

    Keeping up with Reliability Tools Abstract Carl and Fred discussing a listener summitted question: When one’s job is focused on a single area of reliability, how does one keep up with advancements ones own area, as well as the entire field of reliability engineering? Key Points Join Carl and Fred as they discuss the length […] The post SOR 665 Keeping up with Reliability Tools appeared first on Accendo Reliability.

  • The Words We Use Matters

    25/06/2021

    Reliability engineers rely on using 'words' to convey meaning. We come up with 'common' words and 'common' definitions so that we don't need to explain the concept of each term we use. When I say 'failure mode' I want the person I am talking to to know what a 'failure mode' is. But unfortunately, this rarely happens. There are so many competing definitions out there, and too many time-wasting arguments over this confusion. How can we avoid this?

  • Calculating Acceleration Factor

    21/06/2021

    When we want to do 'reliability testing' in a short period of time, we often use 'accelerated testing.' Which means we sometimes need to know 'acceleration factors' to be able to convert the information we learn in 'accelerated' conditions back to actual use conditions. But there are some tricks to this! The post SOR 663 Calculating Acceleration Factor appeared first on Accendo Reliability.

  • 3 Prespectives for Fault Tree Analysis

    07/06/2021

    Fault Tree Analysis or FTA appears in lots of textbooks, guidebooks and standards. But depending on the textbook, guidebook or standard ... FTA might be presented in a certain 'flavor.' But there are lots of different flavors of FTA, meaning they might be a lot more useful for many problems you weren't previously aware of.
