Come join us in celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the ASQ Reliability and & Risk Division. The 2019 Reliability, Maintenance & Managing Risk (RMMR) Conference features an extraordinary technical program, keynote speakers, recognition events, a banquet, and pre- and post-conference courses. It will be an informative and a fun event recognizing the efforts of the many volunteers who have brought you 50 years of excellence in reliability. The conference is focused on highlighting cutting-edge methods to deliver maximum cost-benefits from product and process reliability and managing risk from conception to disposal. RMMR 2019 is relevant to manufacturers in the aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, defense, medical, telecommunications and other industries where reliability is a key driver of operational and business success. If your company needs to improve product development with a goal to improve reliability, reduce warranty costs, improve profits, gain market share, and be more competitive, then the 2019 RMMR Conference is for you.

Course #1: Accelerated Testing - Problems, Mysteries and Solutions
Instructor James McLinn, Monday, October 14, 2019
This one day class will explore, by examples, exercises and solutions to challenging ALT situations commonly found in industry. Topics and tools covered by the solutions will include:
• Understanding of the concept of acceleration
• Use of Multilevel stress testing approaches
• Understanding common Stress models, Arrhenius, Power Law or Eyring
• Extrapolation from the over-stress region to customer use conditions
• Dealing with limits of small sample size
• Using multiple stresses and interaction
• Understanding how to use degradation approaches when life is long.
• Use of Weibull analysis for help in analysis
• Using HALT when samples and time are limited
Course #2: Practical Development and Application of Risk Management Frameworks
Instructor: J.D. Solomon, Monday October 14, 2019
The workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of risk and risk management frameworks. An overview of risk management will be provided that includes the general components of a risk the ISO 31000 risk management framework, including elements of risk assessment (identification, analysis, and evaluation), risk treatment, communication, and monitoring. The emphasis of the workshop will on applications associated with industrial facilities and infrastructure and will include both design-phase and maintenance-phase perspectives.

Course #3: Weibull Analysis in the Real World
Instructor: Jim Breneman, Friday October 18, 2019
This 8-hour course answers the questions:
1. What is Weibull Analysis and why is it useful?
2. What type of data do I need for Weibull Analysis?
3. I’ve had a couple failures of a Safety critical part, can Weibull analysis help me?
4. How can I calculate the number of future events with the few failures I have?
5. What should I expect from Managers/Customers when I present my analysis?
Some conclusions that can be drawn/explained from the data:
• Will 99.5% of the population survive until the next overhaul?
• Is Supplier A’s time-to-failure distribution = Supplier B’s time-to-failure distribution?
• How long do I have to test a new design?
Course #4: Capital Asset Management / Critical Asset Strategy
Instructor: Dave Auda, Friday October 18, 2019
It is sensible that organizations, whether they develop and produce products and/or services, understand what their capital assets are and more importantly, which ones are critical to their vision/mission attainment. To begin, prerequisites are needed that define vision/mission along with supporting goals and objectives. Given this information the identified ‘assets’ can then be assessed within the context of the given information. The approach that will be used here is generally applicable to almost any operation. This course will explore, by exercise, scenarios where no prerequisites are found and where there are well defined prerequisites (vision/mission/goals/objectives). Upon completion of the course the attendee will be able to collect/develop the necessary foundational information and create an asset matrix with assigned criticalities and proposed actions to efficiently and effectively manage the assets.
