ASQ RRD series webinar: Warranty Analysis…in the Real World Abstract
Warranty analysis is offered in many software packages, and the examples in those packages are usually based on simple sets of data. By contrast, this talk presents a case study of how such an analysis was conducted for a more complex problem. Join the speaker on this journey, with its numerous twists and turns.

ASQ RRD webinar series: Reliability meets the necessary condition for LEAN

13 Aug, 202012:00pm EDT1 hour

Convert to my timezone

Lean manufacturing has been around for quite some time and has morphed over the years into variants like LEAN SIGMA, LEAN SIX SIGMA, LEAN AGILE, LEAN Thinking, LEAN Safe, LEAN Control, etc. By definition, LEAN is simply an approach to remove waste from what would be identified as a Value Stream. This presentation will focus on the fact that Reliability is a necessary condition for LEAN and will overview the relationship between the two disciplines, sharing some of the tools that Reliability incorporates to ensure that LEAN is effective doesn't lose sight of the overall mission effectiveness of the enterprise.. This will be an interactive session through polls to allow the attendees to share their perspectives.
BIO: David is a senior Reliability engineer with experience in multiple industries, including but not limited to medical device development, instrument development, high volume manufacturing, energy, aerospace, commercial vehicles and powertrain development.

ASQ RRD Series: Overview of Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs)

DAGs are seen as a significant advancement in the realm of causal analysis by expanding the analysis boundaries and including essential influencers that are absent in other approaches. DAGs have proven their utility in application in mathematics, particularly graph theory, and computer science. Applying them to casual analysis enriches the practitioners ability to account for failure causes that historical record has revealed as being significant contributors. This overview will acquaint the attendee with DAGs and their potential contribution to the discipline of reliability.
