Chip Benedict

Analyzing Field Environments to Understand Product Failure Causes

September 13, 2018; Thursday 10:00am to 10:25am

Novi, Michigan

Chip Benedict will be presenting at the Battery Show; Suburban Collection Showplace

 

Abstract: Product failures often require expensive repairs or replacements. Over-engineering adds to recurring costs and its success is uncertain if the failure’s cause is not understood. Engineers need in-depth knowledge before attempting a re-design. This case study focuses on bus seat failures not predicted by industry standard tests. The goal was to collect comprehensive field vibration data and analyze that data to understand the failure’s cause. The study used accelerometers placed at various points in multiple seating configurations and across multiple field environments. Analysis identified transmissibility issues between axes of motion, as well as higher reliability seat configurations.

Comparison HALT HASS Test with a Random Vibration Test

October 16-17, 2018

Silence Instanbul Hotel and Convention Center, Istanbul, Turkey

Holger Boller will be presenting at the Automotive Testing Expo Turkey

Abstract: For electronic products, required vibration tests are continually getting longer. Because HALT HASS testing is also required, a reasonable question is ‘Can HALT HASS indicate the likelihood that a product will pass a vibration test?’ A related question is how closely comparable the tests are in terms of generated mechanical loads. This presentation presents a comparison of fatigue stress introduced to a printed circuit board by industry standard HALT HASS and random vibration tests.
