Speaking of Reliability — a new podcast series

Coming Soon

Speaking of Reliability

speaking_of_reliability_2015_250x250A new podcast show featuring discussions with reliability experts about a wide range of reliability engineering topics is in the process of development. We’ve recorded a few episodes and in editing now.

I expect to launch the podcast in the next week or two.

The show is in large part based on the questions received over the past few years from you.    You being reliability minded folks that would like to solve problems, improve reliability performance and advance your career. 

The format is a discussion between friends. Think — we just met at a coffee shop to talk about your reliability engineering question. I’ll bring along an experienced reliability engineer with expertise in one or more areas of reliability engineering and we’ll discuss your question. The intent is to help you learn and improve your ability as a reliability professional.

We’re trying to keep the shows to less then 20 minutes each which appears to be plenty of time to fully discuss one specific topic or question. About the time needed to enjoy a cup of coffee. Topics could range from

  • best practices for data collection
  • how to fit a Weibull distribution
  • how to assess your reliability program
  • improving your presentation skills
  • working with suppliers
  • failure analysis practices
  • changing the reliability culture in your organization
  • when to use FMEA to the best effect
  • and, many more

So, please take a moment and let me know what questions you would like to sit down with two of your peers to discuss.

Let us buy the coffee (it’s a free podcast series) and share what we know that may help you.

Please use the comment field or email me (Fred) directly with your ideas for topics, or your questions.

    1. Hi Michael,

      with any podcast the audio quality is key – a quite room, good mic, and excellent quality do make a difference. Software, I use Skype and Garage Band and a inexpensive recording utility from eCamm. There are many options for recording and editing that do a wonderful job.

      The key is content followed by audio quality.

      What do you have in mind for a podcast?
