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: How Aging Laws Influence Parametric and Catastrophic Reliability Distributions 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.

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: Software FMEA

11 Jul, 201912:00pm EDT1 hour

Convert to my timezone

The Design FMEA (DFMEA) has been used for many years to manage hardware design risk. This has led to improvements is hardware designs and increased efficiency in their development. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for using the DFMEA for managing software design risk.

The purpose of this webinar is to describe how to use the DFMEA to manage risk related to the software design that controls the hardware as well as software design when no hardware is involved. The expected benefits of the use of Software DFMEAs is improved software designs and decreased software development time. The webinar will cover:
1. Definition of software related risk and how it is eliminated or reduced to acceptable levels;
2. Four objectives of the Software DFMEA;
3. Software DFMEA basics;
4. Using Software DFMEAs with Scrum.
