Managing Process Quality to Drive World Class Customer Performance – 26-27 Oct

Hello Folks,

We recently ran a very well received training programme on Quality Control in Shenzhen, China on Oct 26-27.

The program is an entirely new education package to help companies drive World Class Quality in their manufacturing processes.

In my role as Reliability consultant with many companies over the last 20 yrs, I have helped implement many different methods of Process Quality Improvement to drive down Field Escapes and Minimise Early Life Failure rates which is the critical period for customer reliability.

Based on the above and the quality feedback we’ll be rolling this out in a big way throughout 2018.

Here’s a note we received from one happy attendee:

Dear Martin,

Thank you very much for sharing Two days’ training. You taught me many skills in how to think differently. Replacing experiences with process mapping, replacing 8D with DMAIC ,especially for the DOE method which can help me to deal with SMT issues more effectively. Thanks a lot.

Youling Jiang , Bel Power

This exciting new seminar is packed with real life case studies across a range of clients.

It is NOT simply using theory from standard Quality references and literature like most Quality Improvement seminars.

Instead, it shows how to use the fundamental steps mixed with quite unique measurement and reporting approaches which enable engineers and management to see clearly where they should be making change for improvement.

The seminar also provides proven methodology to predict escape rates from process to customer and how these can be minimized towards Zero defects.

If you are truly interested in optimising Process Quality in a manner that drives results quickly, then you really should attend this seminar in the future.

Stay tuned for upcoming announcements of this seminar taking place throughout 2018 when we properly roll it out to our customers and clients across the globe.

Holistic Reliability – The Modern Day Solution

Holistic ‘is a belief that the parts of something are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole’ The meaning of the term ‘Holistic’ is very appropriate in today’s complex Electronic and Electro Mechanical products as we cannot assume a one off Accelerated Life Test, a small sample HALT test or a suite of… Continue Reading

Why do so many companies make a mess of New Product Introduction and wonder why Warranty Fail Rates are HIGH?

With complex electronics part of almost all new consumer products, especially those with wireless capability, it is becoming more difficult to ensure New Product Introduction runs smoothly and produces a High Reliability product. Most companies struggle to meet new product first shipment deadlines and focus attention on a production pilot run to weed out defects… Continue Reading

Why Reliability Prediction in Today’s World is too Complex to Only Rely on Standards for Test and Evaluation

Understanding what Reliability really is has become very important for manufacturers and designers. Too often, products go to manufacturing when the Reliability Team has missed something rather major. Reliability Prediction may be complex and it’s necessary for more than just evaluation and testing. The reliability engineers must know more about the product than anybody else,… Continue Reading

What Is Reliability?

In today’s complex product environment becoming more and more electronic, do the designers and manufacturers really understand what IS Reliability ?? It is NOT simply following standards to test in RD to focus only on Design Robustness as there is too much risk in prediction confidence, it only deals with the ‘intrinsic’ failure period and… Continue Reading
