UPCOMING WEBINARS

The ASQ Reliability and Risk Division is pleased to present a regular series of reliability, maintainability and risk webinars featuring leading international practitioners, academics, and consultants. Our goal is to provide a forum for the continuing education of reliability professionals. To date we have provided over 150 webinars!

Webinars can be viewed live by simply signing up for free. All past webinars are archived and available for everyone!

We encourage you to attend the webinars and events, learn something and network! If you are interested in presenting a webinar please contact us today!

ASQ RRD series webinar: Implementing DFMEAs and PFMEAs Using the new AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook The new AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook has now been officially released. The handbook was anticipated to represent a harmonization of the FMEA methodologies found in the current AIAG and VDA FMEA manuals. However, a close review of the published handbook reveals that the core FMEA methodology found in the handbook is an adoption of the software based VDA FMEA methodology first released for use in 1996. For AIAG FMEA subscribers this change is significant on multiple levels.
Along with the core FMEA methodology change, users of the handbook will also find considerable changes in the rating systems as well as the replacement of RPN (Risk Priority Number) with AP (Action Priority).
Using the DFMEA and PFMEA examples provided in the handbook, the webinar will provide the following information:
1. History of software based VDA FMEA methodology which is the core FMEA methodology found in the handbook
2. How to construct DFMEA using handbook methodology and how it differs from DFMEA created using DFMEA method found in the AIAG 4th Edition FMEA manual
3. Why the number of DFMEAs and DVPs required using the handbook DFMEA methodology may significantly increase for complex products
4. Why some companies currently using Excel will find if very difficult if not impossible to implement the handbook DFMEA methodology using Excel
5. How to construct PFMEA using handbook methodology and how it differs from PFMEA created using PFMEA method found in the AIAG 4th Edition FMEA manual
6. Common problems typically experienced by current users of VDA FMEA methodology when attempting to create DFMEAs and PFMEAs and some tips that may help in overcoming them.
7. Review of rating system changes
8. Introduction to Action Priority (AP)

ASQ RRD Series: Deriving Safety from the Quality and Reliability disciplines Safety is a topic that usually gets lots of attention when it fails. This webinar will discuss Safety, or for the lack of a better term, Unsafety. The objective of the webinar is to clarify the distinctions and dependencies between and among Safety, Reliability and Quality. Material content will include coverage of emerging tools/methodologies intent on improving the prevention of Unsafety in complex systems. 12 Dec, 201912:00pm EST1 hour

ASQ RRD series webinar: How Aging Laws Influence Parametric and Catastrophic Reliability Distributions

Presenter: Dr. Alec Feinberg, DfRSoftware, Raleigh, NC
In this talk we describe how physics of failure aging laws influence reliability distributions, not only the type of distribution, but the rate of failure as it relates to the aging rate. We illustrate how one can predict parametric failure rates based on the physics of failure aging laws when known.

A number of statements are concluded. We show that when a manufactured part has a key parameter that is distributed normally, and the physics of failure aging for this key parameter ages in log-time, its failure rate is lognormally distributed.

When the physics of failure is a power law, we illustrate how the Weibull beta and eta can be obtained from the physics of failure aging law exponent and amplitude in the parametric case. We use the example of creep, and make direct comparisons between the full creep ‘rate’ curve and the bathtub curve. Although the example of creep is used many aging laws have a similar power law forms and can be applied in a similar manner. Although we work though parametric failure rate statistics, one can relate it to the catastrophic case.
