Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • Potential quality and reliability risks are not adequately considered upfront during architectural and detailed design.
  • Enterprise level tools used by the systems engineering and the reliability engineering community are different and do not communicate well with each other.
  • Failure modes of complex, electronically controlled products are not well-understood.
  • Knowledge management systems that can help mitigate product failure risks are not readily available.

Many products today are electronically controlled mechanical systems that are complex and employ several million lines of software. Building connectivity and intelligence into products will further drive design-complexity and software content, making it much more difficult to ensure dependability when compared to conventional products. The main reason is the lack of prior understanding of potential failure modes of such complex products. Due to the absence of a formal knowledge management system tying together the reliability engineering tools and the systems engineering activities of today, crucial lessons learned about product failure modes are often missed, and repeat performance issues continue to grow. This webinar proposes a map that connects the commonly used tools in reliability engineering with the systems engineering processes, including a formal knowledge management system, to improve the dependability of complex, software-intensive products, and product-systems.

What will I learn by attending this webinar?

  • You will learn about the relationship between reliability engineering tools and systems engineering technical processes.
  • You will learn about the interoperability needs of diverse systems engineering and reliability engineering software tools.
  • You will learn about the knowledge management needs of quality and reliability engineering for delivering dependable, smart connected products.
  • You will learn about the business opportunity at the intersect of systems engineering, reliability engineering, and knowledge management.

Join us for this webinar if you want to:

  • Understand the business opportunity for strategic software solutions providers or strategic systems integrators at the intersection of systems engineering and reliability engineering.
  • Understand the extent of interoperability issues that need to be resolved in bridging systems engineering and reliability engineering offerings.
  • Understand the role and the state-of-the-art of knowledge management for robust design of complex systems.

Who should attend?

  • Systems Engineers and Systems Engineering Managers
  • Reliability Engineers and Reliability Engineering Managers
  • IT Leadership responsible for Product Development Tools and Systems
  • Product Managers and Consultants from Software Solutions Providers and System Integrators, focused on Systems Engineering and Reliability Engineering
  • Anyone who wants to learn more about quality management

During the webinar you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
