This 6-hr webinar on Reliability Engineering Fundamentals for Medical Devices will cover the science and techniques for designing highly reliable medical devices at lower cost and in lesser time.

Why Should You Attend:

Reliability is the final proof of efficiency and efficacy of a product. During this training, you will discover why statistical reliability predictions rarely correlate with field performance, how to make big reductions in warranty costs, how to eliminate failures during early design, how to select proper tests for production screening, how to set up accelerated life tests, how to manage reliability growth, and how to predict the product life.

With reliability engineering process in place, your organization can meet design validation and verification requirements much easier. In addition, the product development cycle will be shorter.

Attend this webinar to advance the art of designing a robust product using creative thinking and innovation thinking. The seminar will also show how you can add value by using the right tests.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Defining and Measuring Reliability
    • Defining reliability.
    • Construction of probability distribution.
    • Construction Weibull cumulative distribution.
  • Computing Reliability and Failure Rates
    • Calculating failure rate.
    • Calculating and understanding MTBF.
    • Calculating MTTF.
    • Calculating reliability.
  • Reliability Improvement Techniques
    • Zero failure designs.
    • Fault Tolerance.
    • Derating.
    • Design for higher margins.
    • Reducing the component count.
  • Reliability Criteria in Design
    • Checking the robustness of the concept.
    • Conducting design reviews.
    • Reliability allocation, prediction.
    • Reliability modeling.
  • The Powerful Qualitative Tools
    • Design FMEA.
      • System FMEA.
      • Component FMEA.
    • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) for complex problems.
    • Process FMEA.
  • Reliability Testing
    • Tests during design.
    • New paradigm for testing.
    • Tests in production.
  • Weibull in-depth Analysis
    • Proper interpretation of plots.
    • Weibull misapplications.
    • Analysis of life tests data.
  • Tests for Durability
    • Durability principles.
    • Accelerated life testing principles.
    • Inverse power law model.
    • Arrhenius model.
  • Reliability Controls in Manufacturing
    • Burn-in and screening.
    • Combined environmental reliability testing.
    • Controlling Warranty costs.
    • Periodic life tests in production.

Who will benefit:

Those dealing with product design will find the course very important. Engineering changes made through qualitative and quantitative analysis such as FMEA and Fault Tree Analysis during the initial design can save enormous cost later in the life cycle management. Of interest to the managers will be the techniques for life cycle cost reduction.

This course is for

  • Engineers and managers in R&D
  • Design Engineers
  • Product Engineering
  • Product Managers
  • Manufacturing
  • Quality Assurance and Safety professionals

Instructor Profile:

Dev Raheja , a respected and sought out expert on medical device and hospital care safety, draws on his 25 years of experience as a risk management and design assurance consultant to provide medical device stakeholders with a systematic way to learn the science of safety and reliability. He uses evidence-based reliability theories and tools taken from the aerospace, nuclear, medical, and chemical industries to identify the combination of root causes that result in an adverse event. He applies analytical tools that can effectively measure efficacy; establish evidence between Lean strategies and user satisfaction.

His focus is on using various types of innovations to encourage a culture conducive to high return on investment. He is the author of the books Assurance Technologies principles and Practices, and Safer Hospital Care. He has served as Associate Professor for the PhD degree in Reliability Engineering at University of Maryland during 1994-99.
