RL#3-10 The Anchoring Methodology
In this episode I discuss the reliability anchoring methodology from the Reliability Culture tool kit. The anchoring tool ensures we are tracking if changes to a planed test will effect ROI in a manner that justifies cancelling or postponing that test.

RL#3-8 It was a two meter wide thermal exhaust port leading to the core reactor
"The target area is only two meters wide. It's a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The shaft leads directly to the reactor system." Do you know what that quote is from? If you do you are an awesome geek. if you don't I still think you will enjoy this episode about how reliability engineers think a little different from design engineers.

Design Failure Mode Effects Analysis (DFMEA) is one of the most important tools in a reliability program. If implemented correctly it will significantly improve efficiency in the design process. Implemented incorrectly it can be a devastating detour in what could have been a great produce development program. Let's talk about both.

RL#3-4 The Good 'ol Standby
After reading a NASA guide on best practices for fastener retention (lock washers, nylock nuts, tapered threads, chemical bonding) I was surprised to find out that that the method used most in everyday life was effectively useless. Got me thinking, what else do we do in product design as a "best practice" only because we've always done it that way?
