“Finding the Balance between Testing, Modeling and Analysis to ensure Product Reliability and Safety”
- Dr. William Meeker – Distinguished Professor, Iowa State University
- Dr. Andre Kleyner – Global Reliability Engineering Leader, Delphi
- Dr. Elisabetta Jerome – Technical Advisor, Armament & Weapons Test and Evaluation, United States Air Force (USAF)
Exceeding customer expectations and designing highly reliable products and systems is a complex task that should balance modeling and testing. Failure modes must be identified, modeled and mitigated in order to reduce risk while growing reliability.
- However, what type of testing should be conducted?
- When should modeling be used instead or in conjunction with testing?
- How much testing should be performed?
- What type of evidence should vendors provide in order to ensure reliability requirements?
These are tough questions engineers, analysts and managers face during the design and manufacturing process.
The ASTR 2016 panelists will discuss these important questions.
