In this episode I discuss another failure analysis project I worked on - an equipment reliability problem. This example demonstrates how failure analysis is applied to improve reliability.
I also discuss my motivation for working on failure analyses.
This episode is a complement to articles and podcasts available on
the Industrial Metallurgists website https://www.imetllc.com/.
