March 20, 2018 Dinner Meeting Information

The reliability of your product strongly influences business success, whether you’re making semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, motorcycles, farm equipment, medical devices or kitchen appliances. Reliability analysis can help ensure that a product or process functions as intended throughout its life, making for satisfied customers who provide repeat business and referrals. Dependable products also reduce warranty costs, which can otherwise quickly eat away at profit margins. Various techniques will be presented for evaluating the reliability of your product, process, or system.
