This is a comprehensive training course ideal for those who play a role in preventing engineering failures.
The problem with engineering failures is they keep happening. There’s little new about them; most have happened before and their reasons are well understood. The difficulty for integrity engineers and failure investigators is they arrive late to the party. By the time you’re involved, you’re picking up other peoples’ work. Mistakes have already been made in design, purchasing, operation and inspection, leaving you the legacy to sort out. Despite doing your best, failures happen, caused by historical reasons and decisions.
It would be nice to kill off failure-inducing rationale and decisions before they caused the problem — you’d reduce those annoying failures that continue to happen. You’d need rules to work to, and foresight to broaden your viewpoint of where engineering failures are born.
There’s a lot to consider:
Economics Factory tests
Attitude Design for inspection
Ethics Material choices
Design life Operator-proofing
Purchasing Equipment ageing
Multiple events Human interactions
This course is ideal for anyone with a role in preventing engineering failures.
You have a role in preventing engineering failures if you are a:
All these roles involve human actions that can contribute to chains of events resulting in a technical failure, accident or disaster. There are messages for prevention in each one.
