QuICKER: An Online Reliability Awareness Series
“QuICKER”, for “Quanterion Internet Connection to Knowledge for Enhancing Reliability” contains short informative video presentations on various reliability topics of interest.
The reliability of products has become an important discriminator in the markeplace, and is also critical to controlling warranty costs. Quanterion's business is helping to improve product reliability.
The QuICKER series includes:
Reliability of Lead-free Solder
This is a short general discussion on Quality and Reliability concerns associated with the transition to lead-free solders in manufacturing. Topics will include solder, component and circuit board related issues with the materials and processing temperatures associated with Lead-free manufacturing.
Introduction to Corrosion: A Reliability Perspective
This video is the first of a three-part series on corrosion prevention and control. The topics included in this introductory presentation include a discussion on the cost of corrosion followed by a short description on the metallurgical factors and attributes that cause corrosion. This is followed by a discussion on the risk that corrosion may result in unplanned failure or extensive lifecycle costs. The final part of the briefing is a discussion on how to mitigate the potential risks.
Current Approaches to Reliability Prediction
This talk introduces basic concepts and techniques for performing reliability predictions. The methodologies covered include MIL-HDBK-217, RIAC 217Plus, Telecordia, FIDES, NPRD and the NSWC mechanical reliability prediction models. Current activity among government and industry organizations related to updating various methodologies is also described.
The Lean-Six Sigma methodology deals with efficient and effective ways of improving the quality of both your organization and of your product or service. Lean is the methodology that helps you improve quality, by eliminating Waste (take out the Fat). Six Sigma is the methodology that helps you reduce variation in your output. The Combination of these methods into a single methodology allows you to obtain overall improvement of your organization and of its output, be it service or product.
The slides made are available in PDF format.
