Oakland Consulting also provides a number of technical reliability analysis and services:
Oakland has formed a partnership with Reliability Solutions to bring to bear over 30 years of deep technical testing and development experience for our clients.
We have developed customised prediction techniques to ensure accelerated reliability stress test data is used to make accurate predictions for both early life failure and long term reliability levels. These periods represent very different failure modes
We have also developed unique methods to optimise accelerated stress testing for early life simulation and predict the early life failure rate. This enables a very accurate prediction of expected early life reliability which is a separate failure distribution to that of longer / useful life period
This can be combined with traditional MTTF (Mean Time To Failure) testing which is enhanced by combining it with other, stress inducing, techniques. This provides the most accurate prediction of longer life reliability. The results are statistically robust and can often we correlated with similar industries.
From our experience of consulting with multiple electronic manufacturing companies, we have developed intensive methods to assess the maturity of reliability management. By assessing the 'custom and practice' that combine to affect design and process reliability, we can provide a detailed GAP assessment and work with clients to build more robust solutions.
Oakland provides a complete range of quality and operational excellence related training. We have specific training in the area of reliability and have trained hundreds of reliability professionals around the world.
The following webinars provide practical information for practitioners – they cover:
The savings of the projects after 12 months are estimated at six times the initial investment (excluding future savings), which is an outstanding result. Such a success would not have been possible without your expertise, professionalism and availability.
